The thing I miss most about living in Atlanta (aside from the food: Moe's, Barbeque, Sweet Tea, Ted's Montana Grill) is the definite change from season to season. The summers are too hot, but they're different from fall, winter, and spring.
Here in LA its gorgeous every day. Gorgeous and chilly. Gorgeous and warm. Or just plain gorgeous. Where I live, maybe 10 days are hot. and maybe 3 weeks are cold cold.
And it almost never rains, and i LOVE the rain.
And it never snows.
One of my coworkers is from Atlanta as well, and today she said, "Its snowing at home." And I immediately got on the phone to my mother and said, "you have a job. You are to tell me every time it snows. " I need to experience it vicariously through her. She said, "its not snowing." And went to the front door and opened it and said, "Oh my god it just started snowing." I find it funny that someone 3000 miles away alerted her to the weather outside her front door.
I miss snow. I would love to plan a day up to go skiing somewhere around here. I hate to live so close, and not be able to partake. I pretty much think that skiing is the most fun sport on the face of the planet. Actually, its the only fun sport on the face of the planet. I think if I hadn't grown up in Florida, and gone skiing for the first time at the age of 21, I would have gotten really in to it.
Anyway, I'll end this with my favorite picture of snow/ice on the road out front of my parents' house.
