Its different from the feeling upon emerging from an airport at a southern destination. Having come from the depths of a Canadian winter and just having endured the seasonal deprivation of usually many hours in airport air locks and pressurized cabins, that heat is overwhelming and the accompanying humidity for me, induces a slight notion of suffocation. The Georgia moment is more gentle; more of genuine warmth than full on heat.
This year, with work on the house underway and bank accounts depleted by associated expenses there'll be no trip at March Break for us and to be honest I've been kind of lamenting the absence of an opportunity to get a away - until this morning.
I walked out the door to take Number One Son to school and there it was - that Georgia feeling! Warm air - right there in my very own Toronto driveway! Yesterday, skiing a couple of hours north of here we were bundled up. But this morning I loosened my scarf, I opened my coat - there wasn't even the usual chill in the steering wheel and stick shift to make my unprotected hands ache with cold!
Having grown up in Toronto I know there's more snow and cold yet to come this season but I also know, once we get a Georgia moment in the weather, our own Florida-esque weather isn't far behind!
Have a great (very late winter) weekend wherever you are! (Unless you're dropping by from Down Under where I guess its getting on to late summer!)
