I’ve spent my entire life in areas where the weather is anything but mild-mannered. Hot, humid summers and ice-slicked, snowy winters fill my seasons—leaving only occasional gasps for inhaling spring air and the recycling of autumn leaves.
No matter how much I loathe the long, frigid winters every year, I always come to the following November forgetting the misery for a few weeks as the first snow falls. Trees shimmer with icicles, fireplaces roar, hot chocolate pours, and the music of the season croons of comfort, classic loves, and magic.
One joy of Second Life is the physical comfort of the experience. No frostbite or sunburns (unless you want them), no sweaty armpits or frozen nose hairs (please creators, don’t make these!), and the choice to where whatever you please in any climate you like. At any time.
In the spirit of the season, let me share with you one of my guilty pleasure songs, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” as sung by Matt Dusk &Theresa Sokyrka. Click below to stream the audio! RSS users, you may have to click through to listen.
Don’t miss out on the fabulous winter locations all over Second Life! Embrace the frozen world from the comfort of your heated room (or a heated hemisphere, for those who are sweating it out down under!). Here are my latest winter photos. Landmarks for your chilly field trips are included at the end.
