Sand : Thuwal, KSA :: ____ : Ithaca, NY

Choose the best answer.

A) Wind
B) Sunshine
C) Snow
D) Hippies

Snow is ubiquitous these days, and Cari and I have taken advantage of the inclimate weather to practice what has become one of our favorite marital activities together... cross country skiing! :)


This is what happens when you ask a native Texan who currently resides in Saudi Arabia to dress for cold weather: he over-prepares.



Winter has completely blanketed the landscape and it is beautiful. Snow, like sand, makes one's surroundings seem completely quiet and peaceful. Cross country skiing - after I learned to go forward without falling over - has become a relaxing experience for me.

















I know that not many people back home in Texas or in KSA get to see scenery like this. Just wanted to share!

The answer is C) Snow.
