I have a confession to make: I love the cold.

I know for a fact that if my good friend Vinnie Zarletti ever hears this he will never let me live that down. I have been consistently a fan of the searing Florida climate. Cold was always anything under 60 degrees.

I should clarify my confession: I love North Carolina cold.

I was really not looking forward to a real winter. However, it’s absolutely beautiful here! I love the fact that NC has all four seasons, but none of them are too harsh. The hot is not too hot and the cold is not too cold. If it snows, it doesn’t stick around long. If it’s scorching hot, it doesn’t stay that way for months on end.

I love the cold. North Carolina cold.
