This morning during a facetime chat with my daughter, she kidded her father about our snow. He gave her a blank look and said, “We have beautiful white sandy beaches surrounding us.” She chuckled. She and her husband live aboard a lovely boat in San Diego, where blue skies and gentle breezes abound. I’ve been thinking a trip to San Diego might be a really good idea right about now. With freezing temps coming this week… It’s sounding real good. I grew up here, but I don’t remember this kind of weather. Maybe it’s because I was young that I didn’t feel the cold. I used to walk to school in tennis shoes, coat open, and no hat. I was a cool kid or at least I thought I was–not. Today I was bundled—boots, scarf, gloves, hat, and the heater blasting. I was still feeling the chill. I drove by the local high school as classes were finishing for the day. I passed a girl sporting tennies and an open hoodie. Yeah, it’s a young thing.
