There’s a girl in a puffy, puffy jacket sitting in front of me. I use the phrase “in front” loosely – there’s a 15″ laptop screen between her back and my flying fingers.

A puffy jacket!

This is Palo Alto, where, excepting the occasional heavy rain and flash flood, the weather rivals that of San Diego’s.

Hell, if I can survive with only a sweater, her puffy jacket’s overkill.

    One of the big reasons I want to go to these places is to see the reaction of people on the rare occasions it snows, or the rare occasion that it’s cold/cool.

    Well, the people in SF know the meaning of the phrase “wind chill”.

    But of course, this isn’t SF…
