Tale of Two Temperatures

It's 90 degrees today in Cotonou, Benin. It was 40 degrees when I woke up in Oak Hill, Virginia. Fifty degrees of separation — that's a lot for a person who's never experienced winter.This is just one of the many adjustments we'll be witnessing in a few days.

I've been pulling for one of those warm winters that can sometimes grace these parts, especially when there's an El Nino pattern. But the next few days promise brisk winds and seasonable temps, and my purple (excuse me, aubergine) wool coat has already been pressed into service.

Nothing to do but go with the flow, whether it's warm or cold. Nothing to do now but hold on for the ride!
