At least that's how it feels here. It's December 5th and I decided to go with shorts, flip-flops and a hawaiian shirt because it has been reacing the high 60's to low 70's all week and is supposed to reach 73 again today. In my undergraduate studies I was in Idaho, and this time of the year all you want to do is find warmer climates or stay indoors because a warm day is one that breaks out of the low 30's. Here it looks like it's winter outside because the leaves have come off all the trees, but when you step out the door you are greeted with a comfortably warm breeze and sunshine. It's no wonder the elderly tend to move south. For those wishing for a white christmas, it doesn't look hopeful, but I'm not going to complain about being able to drive around in shorts with my windows down in December.
