After Monica's post, this one came naturally.Where are you as you read this?If you live in nearly any part of the United States,
it's most likely cold outside.
And then there's Los Angeles.I don't mean to rub it in.But it's really warm here, especially in
comparison to most other places.
That means we have to deal with a lot of issues that most other places
don't--like drought.L.A. isn't the driest place out west these
days, but the weather systems that bring even our usual rain are avoiding
us.We've all been told to conserve
water.Good thing we have cacti planted
in our front yard.
In the worst areas, you're probably dealing with amazing cold, snow on
roads causing congestion and worse.I'd
imagine it's fairly quiet outside, although hopefully roads are plowed and
It's probably also pretty, with snow and icicles adorning your landscape.
Here?It's been noisy.There have been some accidents on freeways
near us that have involved a lot of helicopters hovering overhead, probably
news crews.Not a good thing, but not as
unusual as it should be.
And it's been smelly.A skunk
scented our backyard a couple of nights ago.I didn't see him, so I'm not exactly sure where he was, but even our
neighbors smelled him.I had to check
our yard before letting our dogs outside the next day to make sure our visitor
wasn't still around.
But all was okay when we woke up, and since then I've still been hunting
for non-smelly evidence of skunk but, fortunately, to no avail.
And I've been sitting a lot, as usual, at my computer, doing what I
always do: writing, editing, creating--and getting up often at my dogs'
commands to let them outside and give them treats.
My best wishes to all of you, no matter where you are and which kind of
weather you have to deal with most!
