I don't remember a warmer Dec/Jan here in mid California. We have been inching close to 70 degrees,
but it doesn't feel like Spring. Nope. It's yucky, dry, hazy, and the air is the worst in the entire country.
Yep, that's our claim to fame around here.
But then I turn on the news and it seems to be record breaking COLD everywhere else.
Life threatening historic cold weather. Crazy contrast.
So today my friend of nearly 40 years, Pam in Michigan, sent me pictures from her back yard.
Suddenly I gain a more personal perspective of what we don't have here.
Look what she has to contend with! But at the same time these pictures are gorgeous to me.
Pam did however save the pictures, including this photo of me when we first started writing in 1974!
Little did I know we'd still be corresponding as GRANDMAS!
Now we mostly email and talk on the phone.
Friendship is friendship. And it doesn't have to be in person to have that strong bond.
Vastly different weather anyway!
