This is Winter?

I live in L.A., which means it never gets that cold. Mind you, you’ll find plenty of people bundled up against the weather. But it doesn’t rain that much, and while the temperatures can drop over night, a really cold day in the L.A. area has highs in the 50s.

That said, this winter has been unusually warm and dry. We usually have spring-like weather for a few days around New Year’s, and then some more in February. This year, though, we’ve had the occasional chilly day, but most of the time our highs have been in the 70s and even 80s.

While this sounds great to someone shivering through a snowstorm, consider this: winter is southern California’s rainy season. And along with our lack of cold, we have a lack of precipitation. It is really, really dry.

So to my fellow Angelenos, I guess I should say this: while the weather’s good, start planning your home fireproofing measures. If we don’t get more rain, this fall’s going to be a doozy.

  1. But think of all the free BBQ’s coming your way 😀

  2. I’m terrified of what the lack of rain is going to mean come fire season. As much as I enjoy not having to drive in the rain…

    • Commuting is the only thing I don’t like about the rain. Well, that and coming up with ways to let my toddler burn off enough energy indoors!

      On the other hand, if it’s raining here, that means it’s probably snowing in the mountains–and that means snowshoeing. So I’m missing the rain for selfish reasons as well as regionally sensitive ones.
