80 Degrees; Ho-Humm


Not gloating

Nor bragging

Though it may seem


When seeing

When hearing

How those to the east

Are faring on this day


Upon hearing of

Sub-zero weather

Excluding the many

Added minuses

For wind-chill factors


When seeing

Traffic at a stand-still

Due to icy roads

Due to howling

Blowing snow

Due to the skid of cars

Due to the spin of

Non-tractioned wheels


Due to visibly impairing

White-out conditions


When I think of the

Millions upon millions

Of you coldly huddled

Back east masses

That viewed the

Five mile

Pasadena Parade

I knew your hearts…

I just know

The hearts of

You coldly huddled

Back east masses

Were absolutely…

Are absolutely


Seeing how we in

Southern California

Must suffer with and in

Eighty degree weather.


Not gloating

Nor bragging

Though it may seem

I know

How sad you

Coldly huddled

Back east masses

Feel for us.


Oh, Jeeze

Kody’s barking to go out

And have to change

Into shorts and sandals.

Oh, Jeeze!!

You are cheeky! :)
It is very cold, yes, and dry. I love the winter, though, honestly. It's difficult to get out on the coldest of days such as this, but most days I love the crisp air.
