Polar Vortex Retirement Observations

Watching the news coverage of the so-called Polar Vortex weather pattern hitting a good chunk of the country gives me a little perspective.  The stopping point of this huge storm hits at the most northern part of Florida panhandle.  We saw scenes from the midwest of snow, ice, and cars  bumping into one another, and it literally gave us shivers.  But the moment of reality made an impact when they showed a map of the upper northwest and identified both Seattle and Portland with having single digits temperatures yesterday.   Gorgeous looked at me and simply said, “wow.”

This morning we went out for a walk under our sunny skies wearing t-shirts and shorts.  We both worked up a sweat, and while unspoken, I think we’re both realizing how fortunate we are right now.
