I'm a communications professional, writer, cynic, mother, wife and royal pain. The order depends on the day. I returned to my hometown in November 2004 after a couple of decades of heat and hurricanes. I can polish pristine copy, but not here. This is my morning exercise -- 20-minute takes without a net or spellcheck. It's easier than sit ups for me. No guarantee what it will be for you.

Situational Fahrenheit

Today is the first day of winter. Jessica is outside in shorts and a t-shirt with rolled up sleeves giving the dog a bath in the driveway.
At the island shopping plaza a block away, several people are wearing scarves and sweaters. We are not caught on the precipice of a climate zone, just a perception gap.
Jessica is home visiting from college in upstate New York. She looks at the St. Simons Island weather forecast and sees 70, the projected high for today although the mercury currently sits at 58. She has pale shoulders and a sleeveless top to wear for New Years. There is a tropical breeze blowing through HER hair.
Locals, and apparently several tourists, see the limited use of winter gear outside of ski trips. They see 58 degrees and read "the first day of winter."
The dog is just happy to get a bath.
