The waves are 6 - 8' and it's about 85 degrees. Today. SoCal skies are blue...for a change* and I was wondering if this makes you jealous in your winter wonderland? Or what is your weather like today (in Britian, specifically)?
When I was living in Minneapolis, MN I rather enjoyed the seasons**, but I'll admit SoCal's weather is convenient (the exception being the Wash Your Car It'll Rain Rule which often applies here, too.)
*ordinarily we got brown skies except near the beaches where it's usually hazy.
**except when it's below zero. That's ungodly cold!
