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.


  1. BBrrrr. Looks beautiful, but cold!

  2. That's awesome. I hope you had a great Christmas. We missed you at baseball.


  3. Wait, why Ithaca, went to Cornell?
