Well, Mark Helprin wrote A Winter’s Tale (excellent book), but all I can manage is this post. A winter’s day in California? What does that entail, you might ask, while the rest of the nation is turning into an ice cube? Let me recount the ways…70 degree weather, sunny skies, pleasant breeze, an amble along the beach path with the family (Kiddo #1 wobbling all over the place as he strives to master the art of the scooter, Kiddo #2 ensconced in his stroller as he benignly surveys all that is). Even though California is almost completely populated by crazy people, it still does have a few positives.
