Hi All, there have been several posts lately about the coming of spring and the long winter. And why not? For you folks up north it has been a wicked season. Record snowfalls, record temperature plunges. My native Ohio is suffering through days of below zero temps. I can remember that my college didn't let the female students wear slacks unless it was below 20 degrees. Of course that's not a rule now, but I can imaging those frost-bitten young ladies would be doubling up the snowpants in this weather!
Here in South Florida, we have had record numbers of tourists and temporary residents - nearly double what some recent years have produced. Our streets are crowded with traffic, the restaurants have long wait lines, even the real estate brokers have smiles on their faces. So this made me wonder... I know what brings people to my neck of the woods - the sun-warmed beaches. But what brings them to your area? Do you have a spot that draws tourists in one or all of the seasons? I'd love to know if I've been there. Come on, someone from Wisconsin, tell us about the Dells! What is the favorite tourist destination within a few miles of your house?
It can't stay cold forever. Maybe your recommendation will bring us all scurrying to your house!
Stay warm and read or stay warm and write!
