Only in L.A.
I wake up every morning with the weather and traffic reports on ABC7 Eyewitness News. (My boyfriend and I love to share a fresh pot of coffee every morning and gently guffaw at Garth Kemp's goofball antics and shameless puppy-promotion.)
This morning, no joke, the weather report was one word: "Perfect."
Yup, sunny, clear, and 77 degrees. When I came off the freeway this morning, I could see down the Hollywood hills straight through to Baldwin Hills. And it won't be getting dark until 7p.m., so all you worker bees will have a chance to get outside while it's still nice. Excuse me -- while it's still perfect.
