So, I don't think I have mentioned it on my blog before, but I get a kick out of all the descriptions of Southern California weather on TV and in the Movies. Usually because they show us as sunny with warm weather even in the winter. I find that especially funny since most of those are filmed here, so they know better. I mean, the 50's or 60's are cold man. Any time something like this comes up, I have to roll my eyes.
So tonight I sat down to watch last night's 90210. (I know, I know. Let's just leave that alone, okay?) And what do we learn in the first few minutes? That the characters are experiencing a heat wave brought on by the Santa Anna winds while the rest of the country is dealing with blizzards. Instead of rolling my eyes, I started laughing. Why? Because we are beginning to cool after a heat wave brought on by the Santa Anna's. And, from what I hear, the rest of the country has been very cold. Granted, it think it was supposed to be over 90, possibly 100 on the show and it's only hitting the 80's here. But still, the timing was just way too perfect.
Who knew TV writers could predict the weather so accurately.
