Even here in LA it's dipping below freezing at night. Item No.1 on the local news for the last 3 days is the frost damage to the citrus crop and the likely rise in price of oranges. (Perhaps as soon as this week- shock, horror!)
In case you were wondering, homeless people freezing to death on the streets is No.4 on their list of concerns, behind the latest gossip about O.J.'s "If I did it" book and the snow forecast for the ski resorts like Mammoth and Big Bear. I think there may have been something on the Iraq war later on in the broadcast, but I had already put my boot through the screen by then.
Temperatures are getting as low as -40C with windchill and its a challenge keeping the motor on the road in the high wind. I don't hate it just live with it. You know its getting bad when the power steering fluid in the motor starts to freeze!
