Here and There

You may have heard about the cold snap here in Europe for the past few weeks.

It's been day after day of unusually cold temperatures. Many nights it's been down to 0 degrees F, and in the day it "warms up" to 10F or so. Today was even a balmy 15!

Dave has been all over the States these past two weeks...New Jersey, New York, Wyoming, Washington, Idaho, and Indiana - he's had plenty of cold weather along the way in some of those places.

Yesterday he called from the last place on this trip...Phoenix, Arizona where he has the winter JV board meeting. He said it was a warm 70 degrees, and that he was in shorts!! That is just hard to conceive of when we're bundled up in sweaters!

It's hard to imagine that there is sunshine and warmth anywhere in the world when it's so cold here. It's nice to look at a picture of Phoenix, and imagine being warm though!

Sunshine, green grass and warm days WILL come again, I'm reminding myself!


  1. I sure don't think of 15 degrees as bbbbalmy...I just think bbbrrrrr!

  2. Wooooow...Arizona!! So. Warm. Looking.
