It May Be Too Cold For Us, but It's Fiiiiine for Them

Today on Giving Tuesday, we need you.
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all today on Giving Tuesday. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls AND will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Let your support for reliable local reporting be amplified by this special matching opportunity. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

While it may be getting even colder here in Los Angeles and many of you find yourselves huddled around your fireplaces, drinking more than usual to stay warm, and arguing over the merits of still wearing Uggs (in/out, cold weather shoe/warm weather shoe, does it really matter when it’s this cold shoe?), some Los Angeles residents are finally saying: “It’s about damn time!”

The snow leopard cubs at the Los Angeles Zoo are finding the frigid air to be just what they needed. Zoo officials say the cubs are busy frolicking outside…something they rarely get to do in their usually-hot LA home.

Where does that leave the rest of the animals that are used to living outside in always-sunny LA? They are shuttered indoors to escape the cold air. Hmmmm. Sounds just like us. Perhaps they too are huddled around fires, drinking too much and discussing the pitfalls of wearing Uggs.
