California weather, rattlesnakes
I've probably mentioned a time or 20 that Bing and I have five children. They are, of course, quite exceptional, or, as Garrison Keillor would say, above average. Three of said children live in sunny California. The other two are brave Midwesterners, residing in Minnesota and Iowa.
The three Californians are somewhat smug about the weather where they live, especially in winter. When we here in God's Country find it hard to be smug about windchills of 50-or-so degrees below zero, they gleefully send emails describing their 70-plus degree environs. Nasty children, they.
