Only benefit here is the dog poop freezes solid so it's easy to pick up, and all the bugs, mosquitoes, whatever are DEAD. I try to find the small benefits this time of year.

Rest of snow gone by noon today and opening up the slides to finish prepping for our trip at the end of the month. Restock and repack and reorganize.

That's hilarious and very true. Our daytime highs haven't been above 20 for the last 5 days and it's difficult to find anything positive about it. Relief is on the way though.

Our weather has been the worst roller coaster I've seen in a LONG time. Hard freeze, then two or three days later, record highs in the 80s. This is usually the kind of weather that makes me sick. Only good news is it's our busy season at work, so we're not going anywhere anyway. But it still seems to rain on the weekends anyway!

But I'm glad to have had some hard freezes this year as few as they are. Last winter was too mild, and the bugs didn't die. So the summer was just awful with bugs. My son is very sensitive to mosquito bites (2 YO) so it was pretty bad. We had to keep bug spray at every door and apply every time we went outside. Hopefully we get a couple more deep freezes to kill some more of them this year! I'd like to be able to go outside without the risk of getting hauled off by mosquitoes!!

I couldn't agree more with you. So far, the only one that's caught a cold is the DW. I'm just a bit north of you. We haven't had 80's yet this winter, but close. I got a reservation next month at Dinosaur State Park in Glen Rose. I'm hopeful for some decent weather!

Threads like this help remind why I live in such an expensive state. Low 60* days and High 40* nights. We do get the occasional cold snap, but nothing like I am reading on this thread.

I don't think CA is expensive because of the weather I'm sure it's a factor... population density and taxes and the infrastructure required to service everyone and a LARGE government presence are all bigger factors.

I'll leave it at that though... ( I grew up in the Bay Area FWIW)

I heard yesterday that of the 50 states, Florida is the only one without snow!
