NWS forecasters said near-record low temperatures are possible Friday and Saturday night in downtown Los Angeles and other metropolitan and coastal areas of the city, and record lows are possible in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys.


Oh boy, it's Uggs and miniskirts time!

Just remember to bring the pets indoors. They actually said that on the local news last night. That, and "your best off just staying indoors". I suppose there is a good chance for hypothermia with the way many people dress around here.

HAAAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

Come on over here, Californiers. It's currently 0 F with a -7 F windchill.

The beer in my garage was starting to freeze, so I had to do a mass evacuation.

Not so bad here, temps are around 18 at night with highs in the 20's and 30's.

My beer is in no danger of freezing. At least, not yet.

I think the difference between 40 degrees and 60 degrees in LA is a scarf and a cap. For example:

winter (taken in May):
the big chill of may 2006

summer (taken in January):
You know you're in LA when...

Snow on the hills just outside my office right now on the Ventura/LA county border. News choppers hovering overhead. Bizarre. Me without a camera.

Edit, they are calling it "soft hail", which accumulates like snow.

What, people know how to handle hail but freak out over snow? This is the new politically correct term for big lumpy snow, "soft hail"?
admin
Maybe it's pellet snow, which is sort of like small, soft hail.

You two make me laugh. I just can't bring myself to say lol or :). It's not in my repertoire.

We used to have a term for snow in Canada called wet snow. You know, the stuff that falls as snow but doesn't accumulate and just makes the pavement wet?

That's opposed to dry snow, I imagine?

I'm pretty sure this was hail. 45F at home, so not cold enough for real snow. It was cold temps aloft and we were having thunderstorms at the time, which are also rare for our area. People around here tend to call 911 when we have thunderstorms because they think they are being bombed.

Amazingly, this ice is still around on the hills the next morning.

If you mistake a thunderstorm with lightning for some form of attack, you are indeed 'bombed'...
