For all my friends who live in cold-weather areas, I feel for you. It gets cold, rainy, snowy, and nasty in the winter.
When we lived in Massachusetts, I can remember waking up in the winter after a night of snow to see if the landlord had plowed the driveway yet, or if I was going to have to just drive through the snow to get out and go to work.
I drove a '68 Chevy for a few years, and I remember sliding around on the ice in the winter...not fun.
Slush makes everything look dirty. It's always COLD. The kids get all bundled up to play in the snow; it takes about 20 minutes to get them all bundled up and as soon as they hit that cold air, they have to pee. So the undressing, and then the re-bundling begins. It's a nasty cycle.
And most importantly: no riding the motorcycle in the winter. Ugh!
So, this morning when I saw the 7-day forecast, I just had to take a picture for my cold-weather friends.
Yes, we live in paradise! ;)
