FLLewis/A Writer’s Groove — Burbank
Now is definitely the time to kick that sluggish or dormant workout plan into high gear. The holiday noshing is over; the business of working off those extra pounds is well underway for a lot of folks. I was out this week, huffing and puffing my way through the Burbank foothills along with other walkers and joggers.
This morning, when I stepped outside it was around 45 in Burbank. I thought that was a bit chilly. Still, today’s weather forecast is for sunny clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s. Tomorrow, we may be up into the 80s in Burbank. Oh, yeah! This is my idea of winter. Quite a difference from Orr, Minnesota, the coldest spot in the nation this morning with a low of 31 below zero. The high there today is only expected to rise to 6-11 degrees above zero. Burrr!
Living in the Southland has its disadvantages like earthquakes, wildfires, and crazy freeway drivers, but on a January day like today — the negatives don’t seem to be that big of a deal to me.
