I can't believe how cold it is in Michigan. Anything would have felt cold to me but this is ridiculous. When I left Florida, the days were in the mid-70s and the nights would maybe drop down to 50 degrees. Here it is currently 5 degrees with a wind chill of -9. I don't understand why all Michiganders do not move to Florida.
Despite the cold, I'm happy to be home for Christmas. I couldn't get into the spirit down there. And we have lots of snow here which feels right (if only it could snow and be warm…).
I'm spending my time visiting with friends and reading Marley and Me. It was a nice, easy way to start reading again. I will pick up Kavalier and Clay again soon,
