First Feature of the YearI live in a place which is still reeling from the "polar vortex." This is my first time writing about it in the social media. I didn't post pictures of my backyard with snow piled up in hillocks, my patio rails where two feel of snow stopped me from watching the squirrels, no screenshots of weather reports, no playing the "whose winter is biggest?" game.First Feature of the Year by Dreamydeb
I spent some of the winter in California and Arizona where the weather was beautiful. Mostly blue skies, temperatures ranging from 75-55...a floating frangipani sun. I also went to Utah where my home is and watched a very frozen lake and tall snow capped mountains from my living room. Then I was back in Michigan to start teaching a new semester.

I don't mind the snow and ice and cold as much as the related challenges of dangerous driving/walking conditions, frozen pipes and everyone being sick all over campus with flu like symptoms.
