I thought I lived in Florida

It's still October right? 45 degrees on the way in, and it's 49 here at the Rocket Ranch. WTH? This keeps up I might have to break out a jacket...



...but it was 75 in the commuter car.

97F yesterday in Woodland Hills, CA!
Whatever happened to Fall???
It is supposed to drop to 80F over the weekend, which will be nice for my daughters playing 2 soccer games on Saturday.
I am going for a ride on the Pacific Coast Highway after work today...!!!

Re: I thought I lived in Florida

Yea....94 degrees here in the OC. Weird weather here even for Southern California. Great riding weather, just a bit hot waiting at stop lights. But I ain't complaining....could be far worse!
