I’ve known Rachel for 27 years. We try to see each other every year, but it wasn’t until this year that we managed to spend time together during the winter holidays. Why? Because she lives in Wisconsin. And Wisconsin is cold. I like my sunny southern California weather. But this year, I got out of my comfort zone (about 60 degrees out of it) and made the trek east. It was cold. I don’t know how she stands it. But I was like a kid on Christmas when I woke up to this magnificent layer of snow.
