I know it's no comparison to the heaps of snow
or bone-chilling temperatures many of our
friends are dealing with right now,
but winter in the valley
is colder & grayer than I'd anticipated.
For a place that gets above 110 in the summer,
I admit that I didn't expect to see the 30s in the winter.
Besides the temps, though, there is often a heavy
blanket of fog/smog,
it can be really depressing.
So we try to take advantage of our sunny days.
