Good news is that by the weekend we should be back in high 60's. Ahh, the reason I like living here. Some winters I never have to wear my ski jacket. I've been here when the winter temps have never gotten down to freezing. as you can tell I'm not a fan of the cold.
I lived most of my life in northern climes. I know what it is like to not be able to touch the car steering wheel without wearing gloves. And shivering while waiting for the windows to clear that little scraped strip so I could see to drive if I scrunched low over the steering wheel just right. When my husband and I retired we were living in Atlanta, but I said that was not far enough south. My goal was to live someplace where I didn't have to ever scrape my windshields.
Now I'm back home covered by a warm throw. Making vegetable beef soup for dinner. Looking forward to a day in the 40's tomorrow and then continuing to warm up as the week progresses. Counting my blessings that I no longer have to endure the tough winters of the North.
Keep warm. And think of tropical isles.
