Wouldn't it be nice to get away from all this cold? Just forget your responsibilities and hop on a plane to California, where things like the polar vortex and wearing four layers of clothing aren't part of the day-to-day life. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
Well, if you're lucky enough to do that, be careful who you tell.
Jimmy Kimmel, who seems to be looking to garner favor with his east coast audience, sent his cousin Sal to find people who escaped the cold to soak in the California sunshine and, after giving them a moment to boast about their trips, hit them with some hard-packed love from home - snowballs.
It's hard not to be spiteful when going outside means below-freezing temperatures and biting wind. So as you sit around dreading the weather, watch this video and crack a slightly evil grin - because even in California, you can't escape the cold.
