oh, how many times have i repeated, "i can't believe how warm it is for january." those words have come out of my mouth a whole lotta times. here we are, a few days from february and the thermometer is a hair away from 50 degrees. let me repeat that: fifty degrees. there are plenty of people around this little mountain town who are lamenting the lack of snow and the fact that this is very, very unlike the typical wyoming winter. but, me? i will not complain one bit about sweating in a down jacket, or opening up the windows, or sitting on the warm flagstone patio with my face in the sun. nope, i will not complain because it's pretty blissful. and yeah, maybe it's global warming or maybe it's el nina... but i will take it, thankyouverymuch.
