Our visit to West coast in February was good, It was warmer than Jackson. Our first stop was to Santabarbara to visit Ishu's family for ten days. From there we drove to Palm Springs for President's day weekend in Rancho Mirage where President Obama was two blocks from us. We went on a windmill tour and tramline to view the city from 8000 feet high. The temperature dropped by 30 degrees and was cold.
