I need a warmer climate

I don't need to live in Florida (Hawaii might be OK), but this is about as much as I can deal with.

It's not that I've been inconvenienced really. I stayed home today. I've had to snow blow my driveway four times so far. The news is showing a gas station canopy that collapsed under the weight of the snow. I'm worried about the ice in my gutters. The cul de sac across the street has a fifteen-foot mountain in the middle of it. It's all kind of neat.

However, I'm itching to be out in the sun, wearing shorts and being active outside. It's driving me nuts. We've had a fairly mild winter and yet I'm already tired of it. I don't know what happened... I used to love winter!

I need to go somewhere warmer in March, even if it's just for a weekend.

Tell me about it. I wish I had the money to escape during the winter. I blame my parents for subjecting me to this weather; I did not choose to live here!

As soon as I graduate I am job hunting in the southwest. I need the complete opposite of this climate and I'm a big fan of sweating my skinny ass off.

So is Hawaii... would you not live there if you could?

Actually, I would not live in Hawaii if I could. It's a beautiful place and I loved my visit... but I don't think I could live in a place that's so isolated. I like to know I'm free to roam without much hassle. Many others couldn't care less, but for some reason I'd feel trapped.

Then again, I could think of much worse places to be "trapped."

The gas station you mention is just down the street from Ignatius. A couple of us walked over there last night to see it first hand. It was pretty amazing.
