Weather forecast saying snow makes it hard to think about returning home from balmy Florida

One of the perks of my job is I get to go nice places during nasty weather.

This week that has meant beautiful Tampa, Fla. for the annual Commodity Classic. It's 80 degrees daily under mostly sunny skies with light winds and ... well it's just plain awesome.

Today, I was looking at the weather since I'm headed home Saturday. And I see that it's 68 today, so, hey, maybe I spent a week in Florida and missed the end of winter. And then I look at the forecast.

Arghhh! Snow overnight on Friday!! Maybe I should find something to do for a couple more days.

In my heart of hearts, I know we are close to the end of winter. It's just that every time it feels like spring it's so much harder to let go of. And a taste of all the flowers blooming and the water, well it makes you even hungrier for spring.
