In a way, I (almost) can't wait to get back to New York because I'm getting too accustomed to waking up every morning to lovely weather. I find myself planning picnics, sunbathing, road trips, and so many other activities that require several feet of snow to not be on the ground. Until I have to go back to the upstate chill, I will do as the dollies do and lay in open fields of grass.
Now all I need to do is find a meadow...
