2200 HRS, 13 JAN 2008: I just enjoyed one of Cuba's finest cigars on my patio along with a few of Cali's nicest ales, the whole while wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Holy crap, I can't get over this weather. It's times like this that remind me of why I deal with this state's politics. Every winter, we get a small heat wave this time of year that gives us a week or two break from the winter drizzle. This year has brought us exceptionally mild day time highs and night time lows. It almost hit 80º today and it has got to be in the low 60s right now. This summer is going to be a bad one. I guess we pay for our indulgences.
