Is it still February?

I have had some kind of under the weather ailment since January 1st.  This winter has taken a serious toll.  I understand why people go live in warmer weather areas when they get older.  

I was out in Los Angeles last week bathed in warmth.  I sat outside in 70 degree weather with my computer in my lap doing work and taking calls.  It was glorious.  

I love NYC.  It is truly my favorite city in the world but I can't believe it is still February.  Saturday is March 1st and I am pretty sure I have never been so happy to see a quasi-spring month appear in my calendar.

The days will soon get longer.  I am so looking forward to spring.

    i was astounded at the cold i experienced in jan, thinking of you and sending warmth from durban. been wondering if we become less tolerant to cold as we mature? 🙂

    I was sitting on the terrace of our hotel room and Florida last week and said the same thing to Glenn. Now in Mexico City, warm. Followed some of your tips from your trip here. Good ones!

    ugh, tell me about it. I wouldn’t recommend visiting Seattle anytime soon. Maybe in July or August 🙂

    Every winter, I swear I suffer from SAD and lament about how I should move to LA. This year, I have had it. And why do we ever get rid of daylight saving time?!?

    I understand why people go live in warmer weather areas when they get older. You realize of course that if you did that type of thing you would most likely totally deteriorate mentally, right? I don’t mean because of the warm weather I mean because of the lack of challenge and engagement (there) that you have living where you live now.

      i hope i do not deteriorate mentally when i choose warmer weather during the cold winter months.

        Oh I’m not talking about if you went down there for a couple of months (or 3). I’m saying if you went down there as a permanent resident. As in “retired to Florida”.I know you probably wouldn’t do that of course.One of the things that kept my dad active is that he was involved in business (and even used 3 computers) until he was 89. Keeping the brain active (and exercise) was key. He spent 6 weeks in his place in Florida each year though.What you are doing now, every day, is the key to staying young. No question in my mind about that.

    Uff Da. Totally with you. Living in a city vs suburbs in extreme cold is interesting. We just moved apartments, and I am half thinking about loading up my car and driving as far south as I can go!! The other day you posted a food thing and your photo-in a heavy coat and hat. Ya, it’s been that kind of winter…

    We moved from Chicago to San Diego 13 years ago. And we love it. Love it. Especially with younger kids, everything is easier. BUT there is a culture/energy deficit. That and the anti-business laws/taxes are the tradeoffs. We happily accept the downside for the weather and seasonal flowers/food.
