As I type this, the latest in this season’s snowfalls has dumped another four to five inches of the white stuff outside my door. Hard to believe it’s only three weeks till spring.
In reaction, my mind swings back to mid-November, when I was on vacation in Hilton Head Island, S.C. The temperatures might not have been at their summer highs, but, in the sixties and seventies, they were still nice and comfortable, thank you very much.
And strolling on the beach outside my resort, where I took this photo, I never had to worry about slipping on the snow and ice, as I do now in my northern New Jersey hometown.
