Summer Dreamin'

I'm dreaming of a vacation with warm sandy beaches where we can frolic in the sun and bask in it's warmth all day. 

Instead, this has been my reality for the past couple of months.  Our temperature got as high as 30 degrees today, and would you believe today has been by far the warmest it has been in weeks?  We have been having highs in the single digits and lows dip all the way down to the NEGATIVE teens.  That kind of bitter cold physically hurts.  This has been going on since the beginning of January.  I'm done with looking at this out my window.  You can't even see my beloved mountains!  Don't get me wrong, I really do love where I live.  I wouldn't move for anything.  But these Utah winters can seem to go on forever.

I took this crappy picture of my backyard right before we hydroseeded for grass last summer, but it gives you kind of an idea of what my normal view is out my back door.  

Please send warm wishes my way.  Or a plane ticket to somewhere warm.  Either works :)


  1. Wow, I thought the white fence in the first picture was just more snow, it blends in so nicely. I'm sorry it's so cold there. If it makes you feel any better, here in Japan we get more snow than Salt Lake, maybe even more than you guys up in Logan. In any case, I feel your pain.

    1. Wow I thought Japan was mostly warm! I guess even being across the world from each other we can still relate. Hope things are going well with you and your cute family!
