Twin cities

Ever wonder how winter in Naples compares to up north in Minnesota?

Look no further than the graph below.

I had a friend visit last week from the frozen snow bound twin cities of Minneapolis St Paul.
.
His wife and family were in town to attend a wedding.

And it was a big one, around 200 people.
.

When I asked him whose side of the family had the “Naples connection,” to my surprise he answered: “none.”

“It’s what they call a destination wedding,” he added.

I was shocked. I’d never head of such a concept.

He thought it was sort of peculiar too … but he wasn’t complaining either.
.

He was happy to be wearing what goes up north as summer attire: shorts, sandals, and a short-sleeve shirt.
.
.

After giving him a nickel tour of our old style Florida home, he got a glance of the pool out back and asked if we used it much.

“Not in winter.” I said – “But yes, in the summer all the time.”

He didn’t say anything, but in retrospect I could tell what he was thinking: Trust me, this is not winter.
.

We tried to work out a final get together – at the beach or for lunch downtown – before they flew back, but we couldn’t work out the details.
.
.

He called me on his cell from Jungle Larry’s boat cruise at the Naples Zoo on the afternoon of their final day.

“Really good to see you,” he said. And definitely don’t sweat it about not meeting up again. My wife and I love it here.”

.
(As good as the zoo is, I think the here he was talking about was Naples, and more specifically: its weather … or in their case: the lack of ice, snow, and cold … see above graph.)

.

.
We’ll be back again next year,” he assured me.
