2013 February 28

               I just came in from outside where I was marveling at the bright sunshine and good weather on this the last day of February 2013.  Except for the years that I was in the Army, I’ve spent every previous winter in Iowa.  I just checked “Weatherbug” to see what is happening back home.  It is 28 with a windchill of 19 and flurries.  Here I am in a T-shirt and shorts and have the door standing open.  For those that grew up in warmer climes, this is no big deal.  And for those of you who “follow the sun”, you’ve undoubtedly adjusted your thinking about winter.  I’m still too new at this for it to seem “right”.  I’m hoping that we will be able to continue this life style long enough to stop being “Winter Texans” to becoming “Summer Iowans”
