I really have enjoyed the longer days but not so much the high dew points in the 60s & 70s... today is much better with only 55 for a dew point and 84 for a high today. The city is tearing up and replacing the street where I live and so I ha... Read more

It is a farfetched hope to live in Minnesota during 3 seasons and the 4th (winter) somewhere much warmer. Not only is it the cold that I want to escape but also the short, dark winter days, the ice and snow (my walker does not operate well in t... Read more
