A One Minute Escape From Winter

As I write my blog for this week, I am looking out of my window at a white winter wonderland. Nice, if you can stay in and enjoy it, but life goes on, and daily chores and errands in the 'white stuff' are challenging when conditions are bad. Currently, snow is falling and there is a winter weather advisory in effect for slick roads, frigid temperatures and a 4-6 inches of accumulation!

Was it only 2 weeks ago I was in the Turks and Caicos Islands feeling the warmth of the summer sun and choosing shorts and swimsuits as my daily attire? Was it only 2 weeks ago that I fell asleep and awakened (with windows wide open) to the rhythm of the ocean waves? And is summer's arrival really four whole months away???

This week, I wanted to share a one minute video with you (made with my Canon Powershot S90) during my stay in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Watching it allows me to mentally escape the bitter cold and to share a bit of summer with those who are currently in the grips of 'Old Man Winter.'

Once again, I think video enhances the still image.
Hmmm...I believe it's time to go shovel the driveway again...Is winter over yet???
