Lots of beautiful sunshine and clear skies for the past several weeks. The rosebushes are loaded with blooms and of course the citrus trees are loaded with fruit. Tangerines and oranges right off the tree... A bit of a change happening, though. Today was mostly high overcast and in the low 70's.


In Australia (sunny and warm...) we are seeing a lot of media coverage about this 'polar vortex' that has engulfed, among other places across the US, Lake Michigan in Chicago,
Even we are saying, "Poor Buggers!"


people skiing to work in Detroit (!).
Well, the few in that wretched place that have jobs...


And Chicago.... is minus 26 celsius ... colder than the South Pole? Quelle horreur...
I'll bet the penguins in the zoo are digging it, though...
