As a native of West Virginia, I am no stranger to winter weather. That is one reason I no longer live there! I joke that I started walking south with a snow shovel and when someone asked me, "What you got there?", I stopped walking and settled down. It seems that the weather has found a way to follow me! When it is cold even in Miami, it shows how my plan was far from fool-proof. At least we don't have to worry about losing pets and small children in the drifts. Records are being broken all over the U.S. and I think we could all do with a little less record breaking! ~ Michael S. Pauley
