Gulf Shores, where are you?

I know it's only a few days into the snowy weather and a few days before the first day of winter, but I miss summer.

Back during my college running days, we used to imagine all the snow was the white sandy beaches of Florida. Two signs I'm getting older.

1) I haven't run outside since the first flake fell.

2) No amount of imagination can tempt me to think nature just dumped a few inches of hot beach sand on everything.

Today I am holed up in a drafty library, staring out at all the white stuff, and I can't imagine this snow and cold away. In fact, I'm having trouble imagining anything. Instead, I sit and long for Gulf Shores and August's sunshine.

  1. You should be in Spokane where we've got a solid twenty inches of snow and it's been snowing solidly since 7:00 am yesterday morning!
