Thanks, NorwIndian — good reminder about the hot, strong coffee, which is delicious, too! (For me, though, not too late in the day.)
I was snowed in enough for my lifetime, and then some, when I lived in Wisconsin. I'm really thankful for the weather we're having now; I'm sure a SoCal "severe winter storm" (translation: colder than 65°, windy, and enough rain to warrant an umbrella) soon enough. I've never lost that sense of wonder that comes with being able to wear sandals outside in January!
