Just a week ago we were being caressed by Caribbean breezes as we enjoyed our wakeup coffee on the balcony of our stateroom, or our evening wine there as the day departed. Since my return I’ve certainly enjoyed the few days of temperatures in the high 40’s or low 50’s. But, one of those patterns that the weather forecasters cheerily tell us are travelling here from Kansas or Wisconsin inevitably arrived. Now, this morning, here’s the first silent signal: Winter is here!
Unless you’re a winter resort it’s a good kind of snow, just enough to be pretty and evocative.
