3. I got winter clothes

As in the real deal. But most folks don't. I am afraid people will die.

prepared.

I tell people "we do so have four seasons--frequently all on the same day"

6. I am betting your house is well insulated

We are spoiled, can't wait for the morning reports of dead homeless. No, not the US press...that never happens here, just across the border. They report that regularly.

7. somewhat

I live in a crappy rental...Project GO came in a couple years ago and did the heater vents (one of the ducts had been totally disconnected!) and blew some insulation in the attic...but still, no double panes so the condensation turns to ICE on the inside of the windows these days..

Can't help but think about the homeless and such on nights like this. Can you believe we have NO shelters in Tahoe? It's a travesty, because we have a pretty big transient population, but nobody wants to make it happen. In the summer, they camp illegally, in the winter... who knows?

9. Saturday was the stand down for homeless and needy veterans in Antelope Valley

The timing was especially good for those needing winter clothing. Cold weather made it difficult for some to make it (the overnight low here was 18), but 70 were served, including a lot of first-timers. More than 100 vounteers and service providers were there to assist with everything from VA enrollment to housing to employment to dental care. Breakfast and lunch were served, and we had a visit by a group of Wounded Warriors who'd been invited to breakfast.

In this very red area of CA, it was nice to hear the director of the local food bank/resource center, when he took the mike during lunch, give credit to President Obama for directing spending and resourcers to homeless veterans.

11. I'm worried about some of the stand down attendees

Some are among the estimated 1,000 living in the desert here. One asked me to sit with him at lunch because he'd spotted the patch of his old Army unit on my jacket. "I smell bad," Wayne said, and it was obvious he was living outdoors from his old, stained clothing and backpack. He told me about his past drug problems and his current struggle with health issues, including pancreatic cancer.

The service providers and volunteers took pains to make sure Wayne got the services he needed, including the simple things like toiletries and all new clothing and a winter coat, hat and gloves. After Wayne changed in the restroom, he came out beaming and looking like a new man. He said he left the old one in the trash receptacle there.

But it's going to be another long, cold night for some...

12. The other day I walked into the store

And bought a new blanket for a man begging at the corner. Man wore army jacket and looked cold. If they had a hat, would have gotten that, he was crying when I gave him the blanket.

It's gonna be cold tonight

16. Be damn careful

A person died last night at a trailer park in a fire.

Editor wants to see if nefarious, I am almost willing to bet defective space heater. Too many years of EMS I guess.

We had to leave the back window open (construction) overnight. We piled blankets on.

15. I just dug some serious winter clothes to go to the market

Many of my merchants are from the back country, so will see if I can cobble a story.

17. You guys stole our winter

I don't think we've had a single high temperature below freezing in NY. It was 40's and 50's last week. I hope you all have the clothes, heat, and insulation to get through the worst of it. Temps in the high 20's, low 30's might seem bad, but they're not. The teens are the real bad ones. Are you getting snow?

18. San Diego gets snow in upper elevations

It went down to 2500, which worried me due to flat roofs. Thankfully it was a dusting.

19. It's all relative.

Here in St. Paul, MN, it was 3 degrees this morning, and will be -1 tomorrow morning.

OTOH, my parents' citrus and avocado farm in Ventura County, CA may well have been severely impacted by the cold there. I'm sure my father was up all night running the wind machines to try to keep from losing next year's crop. I'll find out how it went this afternoon during my weekly call to my folks. Since Dad's 88 years old, I'm pretty sure my brother was out there last night to help out.
