t-shirts in december, my only christmas that I ever decorated a tree in t and shorts, was the time I lived in so cal. it was very weird from a northern born viewpoint.
I like the four seasons, snows blanket, trees crackle, ice sparkles, and spring is always a beautiful rebirth. let it snow!
I've been thinking about the contrast between this area and Denver the last few days. I was in Denver back in ~'82 when a similar storm came through around Christmas and pretty much closed the city down for a day or two. The view from my parents' condo was lovely ... but we couldn't go anywhere for a few days. I was glad we had power and a refrigerator full of food.
This week I've been listening to the reports from Denver with a very different perspective. Today I rode my bike for 2 hours in near-70 temperatures. There was just the slightest hint of a chill in the air when we rode through the shady parts of the country roads.
I couldn't have asked for a better Fall day. Except it isn't Fall. I'm sure that the cold days are coming, probably pretty soon, but it sure doesn't feel very 'wintry' right now.
