Is it just me, or is it cold?

No doubt many folks will scoff at the audacity of a Southern California resident who publicly complains about "cold" temperatures during winter months. They might think that I'm a weather wuss.

And they're right. As a native SoCal resident, temps below 50 fall outside my comfort zone.

But I might not be the only weather wuss. This morning, the back yard was devoid of the usual hummingbirds, Black Phoebes, Mourning Doves, etc. I didn't hear a thing during my morning routine, and I peeked out the kitchen window to see nothing in the trees or on the lines.

Then I looked at the grass... covered in frost. Ah, so that's how cold it was last night. No wonder the birds are slow to get moving!
