Spring break!

Much as I love winter, I’m really ready for it to be over right now. A large proportion of our north-facing back yard was buried under snow from November until just last week — very unusual for our location. Then yesterday, another storm with dreary gray skies and rain-snow mix all day. So I’m very excited to be leaving Denver today for a week in Hawaii. I’ve never been there, have always wanted to go, and this year, spring break seemed to be just the time to finally do it. We are much better at spur-of-the-moment decisions than long-term planning, and everything just fell into place at the last minute.

My only worry is that I’ve just heard several horror stories about people having things stolen out of their rental cars while there, so now I’m leaning towards not bringing my good camera. I know I’ll be sorry when I see all the great stuff there is to take photos of, but I’ll regret it even more if my camera goes away, so I guess that’s the answer to that little problem.

    Aloha! The El Nino spurred winter has been a tough one, even here in Dallas. We had 12.7″ of snow one day in Feb. – a once in a lifetime event here. Tonight it is supposed to snow again, only an inch or two but in late March?? Very unusual.

    Anyway, enjoy the warmth and the sun and relaxing!

    Have a wonderful, wonderful time. See if any of your insurance polices (home, auto) will cover the camera in the rental car. I wish I could be your sherpa and come along!
