We’ve been having a ridiculous blizzard here lately. The newscasters have been calling it the “Blizzard of Oz”, “Snow-mageddon”, and “Snowpocalypse”.  It’s gross outside – cold, windy, snow, and ice.  We have been staying home from work, cuddled by the fire, and even the dogs are snuggled up with blankets (that actually isn’t unusual for them, spoiled as they are).

But while everyone else is filling their kitchen with smells of chili, meatloaf, and pot pies, I took us on a tropical trip.
