On Taking Annual Relocation Intermission in Missouri - In the Winter

Winter Cycle #5

Last year, I ended Year One in South Louisiana after Thanksgiving, and sojourned in Missouri for two months before returning to Louisiana for Year Two.

The time in Missouri resulted in an Important Life Lesson. Which was:  No, no, no, no, and no.

Visiting Missouri in December and January:
  • Too cold
  • Weather too unpredictable
  • Days too short for local touristic activities
  • Everybody is busy with holiday preparations or going out of town, so it's hard to find mutually-agreeable times to meet
  • Flu season
  • I'm not sure I ever saw the sun while I was there

Thank the baby deity that I don't have to do that ever again if I don't want to. This year, I'll be in South Louisiana until the end of February, and then I'll spend March in Missouri. March brings spring. The days are getting longer then. Crocuses bloom, and daffodils aren't far behind.

Icy daffodils.
