2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Frost Warning

January 17, 2013

2012 Volkswagen Beetle

If you don't live in Southern California but have friends who do, you no doubt have had your Facebook newsfeed bombarded by status updates complaining about how collllld it is here lately. East Coasters may make fun of us for not being able to handle anything below 70 degrees but here's photographic proof that it is unusually chilly here.

Driving home in our 2012 Volkswagen Beetle last night, I heard a gentle warning chime. Immediately I looked at the dash for any warning lights. The temperature gauge was flashing and the "39F" had a little snowflake next to it. Don't know if Hollywood was in any danger of frost but it was good to know that even the Beetle thought it was too cold out.
