I know. I know. The answer is……you aren’t in Jamaica anymore!? Nothing is better about being away in the sun than to know people at home are trudging about in snow boots.
It is pretty snow, you gotta admit. You got MUCH more than we did. I’d say over here we have a little over 6″.
Try going away for the entire winter!
Carolyn: As much as I complain about the snow, I actually LIKE it. Go figure. I’d be happy to be gone two months of the winter though. What’s the temp in Florida today?
Oh, the harsh reality of life!!
Nature: How much snow did you get in New Jersey?
Ah, the harsh reality of Florida winters. 53F early-72F afternoon – 80′s tomorrow. Thinking of buying a full set of tag sale golf clubs for $50. Links tomorrow. Phillies tickets sold out in Clearwater.
I’m jealous either way!
About 4-5 inches and it’s still snowing
EI: I hear Florida had a great winter – one of the best in recent memory. Our youngest is in Florida as of this morning, on a plane out of NY that had to be de-iced (never fun) but it lumbered its way to the sunny south so she’s a pretty happy camper. Go Phillies.
Maggie: I’m inherently a cold-weather person. I love being all bundled up, in front of the fire, comfy and cozy. Don’t get me wrong, the fun in the sun, awesome, but not something I could/would like year-round.
In your first Half-Moon Bay posting, you said there were two distinct clues as to your location. The stop sign was clearly one. What was the other?
It wasn’t so much the stop sign, as the No Right Turn, meaning to get around the traffic circle, one had to go left young man.
Clue two, obscure as it was, the empty coffee cup. Jamaicans are pretty famous for their coffee beans. And Red Stripe beer. And Appleton Estate rum.
I am with you. I couldn’t live in Arizona. I could however, stand some Palm Springs right about now.
Maybe this is too personal a question, but are you going someplace sunny for your honeymoon? Don’t feel the need to answer if its a well guarded secret.
It is not a well guarded secret. We are going in the fall to see my cousin who has the most gorgeous huge-onic victorian in Skaneatles. His garage is bigger than my house. And then to Colgate, upstate to see more family and then b and b’ing through VT and NH! and finally to Saratoga Springs! I can’t wait!
Maggie – how much time are you allotting to the VTand NH leg of your trip? Am happy to suggest places to see if you give me an idea of the route you plan to take.
what’s the new houzz widget?
I’ll explain more of my most recent addiction this weekend, when I put up a post about Houzz. I’m just testing the placement of the widget to see if I even want it there. Good eye.
My computer is now getting shelled with ads for 1/2-moon bay. Playing your game has consequences.
Horrible, isn’t it. I think I can pay WP for a site that has no ads. I’ll look into the cost and see if it is doable.
There’s nothing wrong with the pictures. You just need to switch the order.
Astute observation, wise BB. Did this storm produce snow up in Canada, eh?
What a great reminder that you’re home! Did you really sit at the top table or was it reserved for some other lucky people?
Rosie: We never reserved a table but often did sit on that row up front, facing the water. There was an adorable Austrian couple staying at the resort while we were there, he maybe in his late 80s, she a decade or more younger, and they knew the whole staff and the staff knew them. They had breakfast, lunch, and dinner tables reserved. Not pretentiously so, but sentimentally so it seemed. I was dying to find out their names and tried to lean in and listen when someone referred to him by name, but I never quite caught it. And I was not comfortable asking.
I don’t think we got any that time. Most of the snow has melted, and it already looks like the middle of April, rather than the middle of March. But I’m going to regret saying that.
