Forget red and blue — color America white. According to the Washington Times, it seems some crazy snow storm has affected 49 states out of 50. I read this and was all, but I wore a tank top yesterday! Apparently, Hawaii and South Florida are the only ones in the country to not have snow. I don’t mean to boast but I wore a tank top. And sandals. I’ll admit, in the summer I mutter all sorts of nasty, mean things under my breath about Florida but in the winter? I bless it with caressing, loving words. On any given “winter” weekend, you’ll find me reading books outside, jogging with Adi, enjoying breakfast on my balcony, and boasting to my northerner friends.
Yesterday, I spent quite a bit of time outdoors and couldn’t help but wonder how all you other 48 states do it. I mean, I love snow and find it so incredibly beautiful and peaceful… for about 3 days. After that, I’m tired of layering, hat hair, and heaters in cars that don’t work fast enough. I’m tired of cold hands, dry skin, and jackets I can’t move in. So it always surprises me when people voluntarily choose to live in such places and deal with 4, 5, sometimes 6 months of cold winters. And I’m curious… why?! If you live in any such climate, I’d love to be enlightened. On that note, Adi and I just booked our tickets to go to NY in February. :)
The photo to the right was taken last year in January, freezing. And the photo to the left? A few days ago. Warm. Happy Wednesday indeed!
