I was originally going to post a topic for Super Bowl predictions, but that's probably going to be 99% in favor of New England - so I thought, why not the next burning question in my mind today - WILL THIS COLD WEATHER EVER END! Living in the US northeast has been brutal this year!
I grew up in Austin -- I now live near Boston.
I love visiting during Dec-Jan-Feb because I can walk around with a light sweater and be extremely comfortable. I only hate coming back to potential of 1/2 foot of snow/ice in my driveway YECH! [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
Your post reminds me of a call I got from my brother about 2 weeks ago. He had the nerve to say to me "we wore shorts on Sunday it was in the 70's" at a time I was in sub zero temps here (not wind chill mind - temps were sub zero!).
Visit me again in July-August when I'm on the beach in 85 degree sun and you're sweltering at 105 in the shade!!! (I'm gonna be nice and not even mention the humidity) [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Life should NOT be a trip to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an cool and well preserved body, but rather to skid in, chocolate in one hand, beer in the other, body wrecked, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!
