People would ask me, incredulously, if it were true that girls in Hawaii walk around topless and wear grass skirts and if we live in huts. Seriously.
As naive as that sounds, I now know what it is like to be on the other side, thinking the stupid question.
So winter entails cold, snow, blankets of white...but what I didn't realize is that the snow comes and goes. For example, this is the day before Christmas when temperatures hit single digits.
Note that I'm INSIDE and Secret Agent Man is OUTSIDE. Don't feel too bad for him though. He got to play with the snowblower. He's a good sport.
This was Christmas day. Look how beautiful! Don't let the blue skies fool you. The day time high was still only in the teens.
Then this was the day after Christmas.
Just like that, woke up and it was all gone.
For the past month it will snow, melt, rain, rain, sleet, melt, flurry, and so on. I thought it would snow and remain that way until Spring! Who's the dummy now?
Funny enough, once it does snow, it feels like it insulates the area and it feels warmer and brighter than the usual days of gray.
