I know it's winter. I know this because Santa visited recently and shorts are hard to find in the stores. Yes, it's snowing and cold in a great many places in the northern hemisphere, but California isn't one of those places (as in not cold, we're still in the northern hemisphere, most of the time). I also know it's winter because of awesome MOCs like this one from MikeVD. Yes, Miku looks quite cozy in her winter coat with her furry little friend.
