There’s No Place Like Some Place Warm
No matter how many times I clicked my heels in the car this morning, the frigid air did not disappear like Oz did for Dorothy. Dammit. More proof that real life is not like the movies.
Yesterday, Louisville got to see pretty big flakes of snow fall all day long. The drive into work was not fun but I made it unharmed. The drive home was much better – with schools letting out early, traffic was lighter. I did not expect to have to hop through 4 inches of snow in my drive way when I got home though. Boo snow, boo.
The snow shovel is not in the garage – I looked high and low because my genius plan was to shovel my way from the garage to the back door. I have a feeling it’s in the shed that’s behind the garage. And it’s staying there because I’m not shuffling that far to get it. And the dogs don’t have thumbs. And it’s supposed to be above freezing next week so the snow will eventually melt. I need rubber boots.
As of now, The Weather Channel says it feels like one degree in Louisville. Seriously? When was the last time it’s been this cold? Did it even get this cold when we had the ice storm last January? One degree. I can describe it best in three words: it effing sucks.
I’m going to keep clicking my heels. And maybe – just maybe – I’ll end up here.
The California desert is calling my name. Take me away Indian Wells. Lay me next to the pool so that I can defrost my toes.
BTW, that photo above makes me want to throw myself in the car and drive. I hear Florida’s getting some flurries so I’ll just go west. I’ll make my way to Palm Springs, hang a left and bury myself in the desert for a day or two. I just need some place warmer.
This is a beautiful resort, no? I can’t remember the name of it but I stayed here for a week or so in 2008 for a convention. It does get hot in June but I’ll take those sweat beads over goose bumps any day. Because even though I’m inside right now, my feet are still popsicles and I’ll be donning a fleece blanket in about 10 minutes. I need an electric blanket. Stat.
