I am a weather wimp

December 15, 2012

It was cold in Suwon this past week. In point of fact the weather was comparable to winter weather in New York, but sadly I have become a weather wimp. I blame California. After living in the Bay Area for 6+ years I’ve forgotten how good we have it. People in other locations can’t bike to work in December because there’s snow and ice on the ground. People in other locations have to check the weather to determine whether to bring an umbrella. People in other locations have to wear gloves, hats, and scarves as a matter of course in the winter, not just when they take a vacation in the mountains. I am glad I am not one of those people.

I realized one other winter-related tidbit on this trip. While I have in the past gently made fun of the popularity of incredibly fancy toilets in Asia, I must confess that heated toilet seats are sheer genius in cold weather.
