Given all the snow, ice, and sub-freezing temperatures lately it is hard to get my mind around today being the first day of winter! Was all that really Fall?? I kind of think it has something to do with global warming screwing up all the atmospheric condition of the world. But, I am not a climatologist so what do I know?
I always have mixed feelings about living in a northern State and having to face some pretty severe weather conditions. I often dream of being somewhere where is it warm instead of freezing my ### off. But then again I read a couple of bloggers who live in Arizona and they lament about all the heat of summer keeping them indoors. At least with winter in the north it is kind of beautiful as long as you don’t have to get out in it. So maybe this is really where I belong.
But then the idea of being a “snow bird” is always enticing even if I can’t afford two places to live or my wife would never leave the snow she loves so much….
