Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: raerae1980: I don't think I'd survive Pittsburgh right now.It's a balmy 2°F right now, with a wind chill of -18°F.I had to step out of the office for 15 minutes earlier today and my eyelids nearly froze open.
hervatski: Other than the constant threat of earthquake, LA is awesome.

Our furnace picked a dandy day to spaz out, but we were able to fudge it into working enough to keep the house above 50. Still battling to keep one particular water pipe unfrozen, but the worst is behind us now. I don't recall cold like this here since I was just a kid. Funny that it's going to be in the damned 50s for the weekend.
Le Grand Inquisitor: hervatski: Other than the constant threat of earthquake, LA is awesome.Listen man, if earthquakes don't bothers you, I'd argue the Bay Area is far superior to LA. Better people, better food, water all around, amazing architecture, better sports teams, better weather! Sorry dude. You chose the wrong part of California.
Calmamity: I couldn't handle living in southern CA. All that relentless sunshine would be goddamn oppressive.
Le Grand Inquisitor: hervatski:No way dude! Weather is way better down here. My brother in law got a tan at the beach yesterday!Architecture yes. All around food? Ehhh its a wash for the higher end stuff. But no way you have better tacos or the little ladies who sell bacon wrapped hot dogs out of a shopping cart in front of the clubs/bars.Also the women are hotter here.Damn you, you know bacon wrapped hot dogs and, by extension Chicken and Waffles, are trump cards in the LA column. But man, for seafood, a nice clam chowder, crab, fish...SF has that in aces.Less clothes does not equate to hotter.I went to college in SD, clothes were flying off left and right down there all year round. But you can only have so many dye-job blonds before you start to question if there's got to be a better way. The answer is yes, and I've found it. Half-filipinos, and the Bay area is lousy with them. You're welcome. Southwest has cheap flights to Oakland, hell, i'll pick you up from the airport
SecretAgentWoman: I grew up in Southern California in the 80s. We were always on the verge of a drought with s about conserving water, etc. But get one light drizzle and all hell broke loose and everyone complained about the weather...
meyerkev: Calmamity: I couldn't handle living in southern CA. All that relentless sunshine would be goddamn oppressive.As the whitest white person who ever whited, I'm seriously considering trying to move up to the Pac NW at some point.Seriously, you're all "YAY, it's SUNNY." and I'm going "FARK, MY FACE IS BLISTERING" (Mild exaggeration. That's only happened twice).So sign me up for those 300 days of nothing but clouds and drizzle with good skiing a half hour drive away./N. CA.//Dad has 18 inches of snow back in MI, I put on a hoodie to walk to the train this morning.

quo vadimus: Just curious, why do people post links to pages with embedded youtube clips? Is it because they honestly believe those pages add value to the clip? Is it because they don't know how to get to youtube? I'm guessing it's whatever page the original person saw it on and they're just too lazy to click on more time, yes?

ShawnDoc: It hasn't been in the 60's during the day in SoCal since early December. It's been 70s and 80s pretty much non-stop since a week before Christmas.

Lando Lincoln: I had to fight off three White Walkers just to get to my car this morning. And it didn't even start.Screw that "winter is coming" nonsense. Winter is HERE.
