Let It Melt, Let It Melt, Let It Melt
Some people seem surprised that I grew up here in Las Vegas. They seem to think that everyone moved here in the last 10 years. They have... but some of us had to pave the way. I tried to move away but discovered that I hate the cold. My father was a smart man. As a tennis pro, he said, "Where is the city that gets the best weather?" You can't work your profession in snow. If anything, I came to the conclusion that I wasn't made for lower temperatures after attempting skiing and moving to Reno for 6 months where "black ice" is a normal thing on the road. I love the heat. I remember as a child that I'd use an electric blanket throughout the year. So, as you see the picture in a previous blog post, I was pretty shocked to see the snow. I've only seen it here in Las Vegas about 3 times. Snowmen melt really quick. Maybe, I'm just an indoor person -- housebroken and loving it.
