Record-breaking warm temperatures in Utah this week help ease our transition back to reality. Reality being stacks of mail and bills and unpacking and all that.
I like shorts and sleeveless and flip-flop sandal weather. We’re not supposed to have that in the mountains here until late July. Heck, I remember it snowed on the July 4 parade one year. Baja was unseasonably hot too–enough that I didn’t want to be riding a bike in the middle of the day. Global weirding.
Deer Valley and Canyons close for skiing on this weekend but there is plenty of snow still on the slopes. I went skiing. Nope–I wasn’t afraid to put on ski boots. I do say I am as happy as a chirping gecko to be home.
