Happy New Year! (yes, I realize that it’s more than half way through January – I’ve been slacking). I spent the past week at a work training in Tampa Florida. Before you ooohhh and ahhh and say “boy, it must be nice” let me just clarify that:
- It was like 50 degrees the whole time I was there. Maine was like 50 degree the whole month of December.
- There are NO BEACHES in Tampa. Not that it would have mattered, because I was there for work, which meant 8 hours a day in a windowless room looking at powerpoints. Yes, my job is that exciting at times.
- I am not big on travel. Not even to Florida in January. I would still rather be home in Maine.
I will say the people in Tampa were exceedingly nice and very friendly. That much reminded of me being home.
When I left, winter hadn’t really arrived yet in Franklin County. When I got back I was greeted by fresh snow, followed by another 8 inches of powder. I might have missed Florida a teensy tiny bit while snowblowing. But otherwise, there’s no place like home!
