6 Months Back Home

Hal and I have been home from Cambodia for almost exactly 6 months now. Hard to believe we've been home that long.

In the 6 months we've been home we've gone from this:
To This:
We have had the snowiest winter here in Utah that anyone can remember. I've been feeling really cooped up with all of this snow, so last weekeend when we had a big snow storm come through and it literally didn't stop snowing for about 10 hours straight and dumped over a foot I decided to just enjoy it.

Hal's parents were coming home from a cruise so we decided to be nice and shovel their driveway and sidewalks for them, with just a bit of playing in the snow.

Above is the fresh snow on the driveway, and below is the piled up snow that hasn't melted away.
One of the biggest adjustments has definitely been the weather. Hal has been bundling up with thermals while I've been toughing it out, trying to get my body to readjust to the cold.

As much as I hated the humditiy and the heat while I lived in Cambodia. It's days like these, filled with endless cold and inversion that I miss that heat for half a second before I remember the lack of AC and endless sweating.

I think I'll take the snow.

Yeah, I remember that adjusting back to Utah climate was one of the harder things about coming back. Luckily I came back in the summer so it wasn't a huge shock at first (other than the lack of humidity), but I remember that that first winter was brutal.

Keep your chin up, though--at least January's over, right? :)

I'll take something right in the middle.

I started feeling like I needed a blanket after all these pictures of snow!

OH...btw...I'm going to Salt Lake next week. Please tell me that it's going to be 70 while I'm down there.

I was enamoured by the snow at first, but now I'm kinda over it...and we don't even get that much in London. I'm a sun girl when it comes down to it!

I always think in the summer "Just remember, it could be below zero with feet of snow on the ground." And in the winter I think "Okay, I could be sweating my butt off trying to get ready for work."

Oddly, those thoughts never make me feel any better....

That's one thing about moving that I do not miss... SNOW! Stay warm girl!
