Sure its cold this morning

freezingAs you may all know, Sacramento is the capital city of U.S California, and the seat of government in Sacramento county. It is at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River in the northern portion of California’s expansive Central Valley. Just waking up this morning sure is really cold, though I have my heater beside me while sleeping at night still you can tell how freezing it is outside from looking at the windows because of the frozen ice and sweating. My understanding of the weather here in Sacramento since I moved here. Is that when its Summer/Hot temperature Sacramento weather sure will be really hot it could go up more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, some people prefer it. But when its winter time its really really cold because we are living in the central valley.

The temperature this morning at this time and its already past 10am is still freezing 39 degrees Fahrenheit which is not that bad.  Compare to where I used to live in Des Moines, IA and Ankeny, IA Mid west is known for Winter snowing weather during this time of the year. So i kinda got used to the cold temperature but you still want to wear something that will not catch you a cold, pneumonia, so be safe peeps, always wear something warm out there, especially if your traveling. Its also December and its time for Holidays, so just want to shout out to everyone to be safe this holiday season and keep warm and cozy!
