It seems like the "polar vortex" is still wreaking havoc in San Diego! The San Diegans are in shock that their winter weather is being ruined by the heat.

What is BALLROOM WITH A TWIST? Well, I could tell you now, but then you wouldn't read the rest of my post, so you'll just have to follow along.
