Yep.  That’s what we’ve got at the moment in Utah.  Around 65 when we get up in the morning, around 85 mid-afternoon.  Clear blue skies all day, gentle breeze.  Of course, that all makes sense given that Costa Rica’s central … Continue reading

YakTrax and Hats

Yes, when we gave away our YakTrax in Maine in 2006, I sure don’t think we figured we’d be buying them again in 2012.  But here we are, and today we happily bought two new pairs of YakTrax at 30% … Continue reading

Settling in nicely

Okay, I promise there will be more interesting and exotic posts to come, but for now rather than post nothing, let me just say we’re continuing to settle in well here.    Other than our brief snow last weekend, the … Continue reading

Sunday Snow and the New York Times

Utah has been kind to us, easing us back into life with four seasons after 5+ years spent in the mild weather of the tropics.  For our first week here we’ve had comfortable temperatures, many sunny days, and no snow, … Continue reading

Sunsets from Costa Rica to Salt Lake City

Okay — there’s no question, we’ll miss the spectacular, mind-boggling sunsets that we’ve experienced here in Costa Rica.  Throughout our life together we’ve sought out homes that would have a sunset view, but I can say that none (to date) … Continue reading
