Travel Theme: Winter

What did you do on the winter solstice? Were you warm and cozy inside, working, or out playing?

My dog had to get out after five straight days and nights of sleeping on my bed (a 120-hour nap!), so we ended up celebrating the Winter Solstice for a few hours in the great outdoors of Western Colorado.

Nothing like BFF dogs playing in the snow to make you smile. And nothing sillier than a couple of 40-somethings going tubing with one little inner tube. Good times!

    I don’t pay attention to the winter solstice. Winter never happens in Phoenix. 😦
    Glad you had a great day!

    Yesterday it was in the 70s here and at my sister’s it got to 83 in the sun. Strange for the first day of winter, even out this a’ way. How I wish for snow again….. 😦

      Yeah, I read in someone’s blog that it was in the 70s in Washington, D.C. That does seem strange. We’re having a long lasting inversion, so snow and cold temps are being held down in our valley.

      I’m sure you’ll get hit. Don’t you always, eventually?

        Not really, if anything ice. But every few to five years we’ll get like 6 plus inches (maybe). Nothing like in the 1980’s when it snowed every year and we got 20something in one go and 18 the year before. I didn’t realize it was supposed to be warm here in comparison to PA. I thought December and winter meant snow wherever you were. I learned though, didn’t take long.

        We’ve had snow on the ground for several weeks. A little unusual. The inversion is keeping it from melting.
