Heading Home for Christmas

That’s right, packing all of my winter gear for a holiday trip up to Ohio, where they are supposed to receive a bunch of snow over the next few days. I haven’t been home for Christmas since I moved here in 2004. I will not enjoy the cold weather but it’ll be great to spend time with my family and friends in the cold north.

I’m packing all 2 of my sweaters… that’s right, I only own two sweaters. I’m counting on layers (and probably some scotch) to keep me warm. Well, that and my 2.3mm wetsuit top. If I really get cold I putting that thing on for sure (under my clothes of course).

Flight leaves tomorrow morning at 10am so I’m taking the southbound Tri-Rail to Ft. Lauderdale. I should be in Columbus around 2:30. I’m sure I’ll be glad to get back to Florida weather by the time Monday rolls around. One of the many perks of living in a semi-tropical climate though it’s been cold here lately.

So, to those of you flying, driving or just heading home for the holidays, be safe and have a Merry Christmas!
