Warm-Up Act

Fleeing a cold region of the country to take refuge in a warmer region is an animal instinct. Birds do it without even thinking. Depending on where you live, you probably wish people did the same. You can, actually. Plenty of people pack up their things and head to warmer weather when their chosen locale grows too cold. If you’re wondering how to do it yourself, check out this video of Miss August 2013 Val Keil keeping it warm in Malibu.
