St. Somewhere

February 19, 2013 Photo of the day:
"Operation St. Somewhere"

During the past 24 hours, the temperature has fluctuated by 50 degrees (from 40° F to -10° with the wind chill factor). It rained, it snowed, and the winds have gusted up to 40 mph. This morning's commute was a white-knuckling, heart-stopping slip and slide through Lake Country. I have been a good sport about winter for the past four months; in fact, I have even showcased its beauty. But I'm tired of bone chilling cold and treacherous roads. It might be time to launch "Operation St. Somewhere"! 

Jimmy Buffett might be right: 

Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap air fare
I gotta fly to St. Somewhere
I'm close to bodily harm
Twenty degrees and the hockey game's on
Nobody cares; they're way too far gone
Screaming boat drinks
Something to keep them all warm...

Oh I know, I should be leaving this climate
I got a verse but can't rhyme it
I gotta go where it's warm!
Boat Drinks

I wish I were in St. Somewhere:
  • St. Lucia, St. Barts, St. Martin, St. Kitts, St. Thomas in the Caribbean
  • St. Tropez, St. Paul-de-Vence, St.-Malo, St.-Jean de Luz, Mont-St.-Michel, Ile St. Louis in France 
  • San Sebastian in Spain
  • Piazza San Marco (Venice), San Remo in Italy
  • San Francisco, San Diego, San Juan, Santa Barbara in California

Any other suggestions?
