It seems almost unfair and insensitive to talk about the weather in California when some of my friends are experiencing a new ice age. Temperatures are way below zero across the map, yet we're experiencing some of the best weather ever. Sunny with highs in the mid sixties. Ahhhh.
Of course we have to take advantage of this beautiful weather before it goes away to be replaced by (hopefully) rain and snow - also known as spring in these parts. So today we packed our bag with bottles of water, binoculars and a giant magnet and set out for the nearest lake. I heard that the lake was low, but I was shocked to discover that it is hardly a lake at all. The lake better resembles a river.
We tossed our bag aside, took off our shoes, rolled up our pants and played at the water's edge. I never imagined a day at the shore in the middle of January. I should have packed a beach blanket, sand toys and sunscreen.
Californians may be worried about running out of water and money, but we three Californians enjoyed one without spending any of the other. To quote Avery, today was "the best day ever". Memories like these will keep us warm come spring.
