It's easy to forget that it's winter around here. You probably didn't even notice that today is the winter solstice. Yesterday temperatures in LA reached 80 degrees, just 3 degrees lower than the highest ever recorded in the city (that was in 1985). Not that we're complaining; in fact, we'll be busting out the sunscreen. If you're thinking beach, you're not the only one: LA Observed tells us that waves are up today — way up. In other parts of the city, they've got below-freezing temperatures, a transit strike and rain. Who picked the right place to live? You did. Now go on — enjoy it.
