I know you will laugh but it's kinda scary. Several freeway on ramps were closed this morning in the LA Basin and there was ice on our birdbath about half an inch thick too. At the bottom of our hill, there was still ice in the swale at the "T" intersection a 5:00 PM today. How, oh how, can we go surfing with ice on the streets and giant squid all over the beaches?

Some people are never happy!
Katrina gave you waterfront property.
BP gave you free oil.
Now you get free Calamari and free Ice to pack it in and you still want to go surfing! LOL

Woops, When I first read the LA part I thought Louisana. Just noticed you meant LA California. Now the LOL is on me.

It's been mid 50's here the past few days. Almost hit 60 today. Very, VERY rare for here this time of year.

I just plugged my trailer in and put an oil heaater in it just to be on the safe side. Every few years we get these freezing temps that come through California. Good news is it doesn't last more than a few days.

Maybe in your part of this BIG state. We've been frozen for a couple of weeks. No thaw until next month.

For the last couple of days and the next two or three our temps have been running around 40 for a high with 22 for the low.... and we live just outside of Tucson. I think they call this phenomenon "winter". Had a dusting of snow a couple of days ago but nothing to write home about. There's a couple of feet of snow on Mt Lemon, about 12 miles due east and the ski resort there has been running since December so if you would like to get in some skiing come on down to Tucson.
