Life in LA is different, though in many ways, just like any other major metropolis with a few million, gazillion people. Valenitne's day proved to be no exception with the usual fare of traffic snarls on freeways, surface streets, and even our one subway. All in all things still worked out, though decidedly differently than either of us imagined beforehand. I would guess there were many subway riders who had similar experiences.
Our real difference is that we don't get real seasons like winter or fall. Temp's on Valentine's day were a balmy 70-75 downtown in mid February! Along with that, though, is no rain or other excitement, weatherwise.
