Weather Does Not Wait for You

Weather has been my enemy when traveling.  Like when I traveled to Chicago during a snow storm.

But sometimes I use travel to alleviate the pain of weather.

I jumped to Florida when we were getting a snow storm at the end of March.  So worth it.

But sometimes, those plans don’t work out quite right.

For a while, I planned a trip to Atlanta in the month of January–specifically to escape the cold.

Guess what happened?

A bout of snow hit Atlanta while I was traveling there.

So my dreams of mint juleps on porches were not to be discovered.

But I did find a way to eat and drink my way through Atlanta.

I discovered the Westin in Atlanta had a bar on it’s absolute top floor.  One that rotated with a beautiful view of the city.


I was indoors, but at least it had an outdoors feel–without an outdoors temperature.

It jumped up to the 70s right after I left.  Figures.

Have you ever planned a trip around the weather that was supposed to be in your location only to find something really different?  What happened?
