Christie: Can’t Wait To Be Snow Bird

Christie Wood: Flew in (Saturday) night at 11:00pm after a glorious week in Hawaii (Thank you my dear in-laws!). The weather here is quite the contrast to what we have enjoyed for the past 7 days. We were out the door at 7:00am every morning and did not go back inside until at least 10:00pm. The days are long, warm, and beautiful. I wonder if the locals there understand how great it is? They are so lucky to experience the outdoors, the ocean, fresh fruit all year long, and the warmth of the sun. I am looking forward to being a snowbird some day. But for now, I am back at work (today), re-energized, and ready to support the levy.

Question: Have you taken a trip to a warmer climate place this winter? Did it revive you? Or were you miserable when you returned to the cold Inland Northwest?
