Long Ago and Far Away

It was one thing when February was blazingly hot and I was living in Australia or New Zealand. The heat felt weird in the middle of what should have been winter, but at least I could attribute my confusion to living in the opposite hemisphere.

Now it's February once again and Michigan is below freezing and covered in snow. I'm sitting outside sunning myself in 65 degree weather. Considering that I'm back in the northern hemisphere, all I can seem to attribute it to is that I've picked a better place to live.

speaking of australia, i just read an article on sfgate [i can't find it now - it was in the ap headlines] about the australian premier offered an apology to the aborigines and was wondering what you thought about it. did you get a chance to hear about it?

Yes, we are freezing here in MI. Send us some sun, please.

The East Coast wants some sun too. I keep thinking that this time last year *I* was in New Zealand too (and my friends are getting sick of hearing about it.) Sigh.

We are definitely matching your warm down here in the south and we remain in the Eastern Time Zone.

Sorry, AP--should have said "New England". I'm not even a native Bostonian, and I still act like it's the Hub of the Universe sometimes.

And it's cold.
