Embracing ‘Winter’

Recently, I’ve been seeing all the tell-tale signs that winter has arrived – lots of cars adorned with freshly cut Christmas trees, holiday lights abound all around, and next week I’ll be attending various holiday parties.   Yes, “Winter” has arrived here in NorCal.

Yet oddly, Mother Nature seems to be preoccupied, focusing attention elsewhere – like the Upper-Midwest.  Today, I’ve seem many Facebook and Twitter comments, along with other news reports detailing what appears to be the first major winter storm of the season.  Apparently, my friends and family across South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are really getting hammered.

Fresh and fluffy flakes equate to lots of cold and lots of snow … which at first is all fun and play.  But it’s only a matter of time before reality sets in – the cruel reminder of the drudgery that is winter.

Not unlike those in need of their shovels and snow boots, Kelly and I also had our own issues to deal with this morning – mainly, how best to enjoy a lovely “winter” morning.

Following a quick stop for coffee, we settled on the beach.  A perfect place to enjoy the ocean, big blue skies, and warm temperatures as we contemplate our next move.
