"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) - U.S. First Lady, diplomat, human rights activist
Things are really heating up here in the south. I'm not talking sports or politics, I mean weather. One thing I love about living where I do is the weather. I've been on the beach in shorts on Christmas day. One thing I hate about living here is the weather. Summers can be unbearable!
Still, I prefer hot summers over blizzards any time. I lived through the "Blizzard of '79" when I was living in Illinois. As a matter of fact, I was in Lake Geneva, WI that weekend and it took me three days to get back. I learned a lot then, mostly that I prefer living down south and it was time to head home.
