If you are here in Arizona as I write this letter, you are enjoying temperatures in the mid-80s and mild winds. That plus low humidity makes for very comfortable days. We do love winter at our northern Minnesota place, with a chance to cross-country ski and enjoy a white Christmas, but with less snow than normal and some very cold days, it seemed a good time to head to the Southwest. Wherever you are, I hope your winter so far has been tolerable. It has certainly been unusual.
