This is about as close as I can get to being tropical in January. In Ohio.
I, however, am not complaining. I am one of those people who love snow. I smile and nod when other people complain about the weather, but I am not actually feeling their pain. Once in a while I come right out there and admit that yes, I am a snow lover. People usually accept me anyway. They may roll their eyes and pat me kindly on the head. To my knowledge, I've not lost friends over it.
