living the dream...

No, really. No sarcasm here. Weather wise, this is about as good as it gets for this Cali Girl. With the exception of less than a week, we have had sunshine every day for as long as I can remember. No snow or signs of snow. No winter here. 45 in January feels like 65.

Wearing shorts when at home and the flip flops aren't packed away, you never know. Have been having wonderful memories of Palm Springs. Was there a few times as a kid and loved it. When I think of Palm Springs, I think of white, huge houses. White, inside and out. White walls, white floors - white everything. Having Palm Springs to think about on a 45 degree day in Idaho, is about as good as it gets in January.

Bogus Basin, our local ski mountain is covered in grass. They have not opened and see no opening date in the near future. The loss to them daily, $100,000 dollars. Nothing to laugh at. With no snow and very little rain, water will be a huge issue come spring but for now, for me - living the dream is just that and much more.
