It still boggles my mind that Christmas is only 10 days away, but calendar says it is so. And whom am I to argue with the calendar? To be fair, I’d argue on a bad day. Anyway, I leave for Minnesota in a few days and my brother told me with great glee that the high temperature will be negative something when I arrive. That’s right. The high is negative. And I’ve been whining about overcast skies and 60 degree temperatures in LA.
