We Get the Winter Blues in the Caribbean, Too

Yet another stormy winter weekend looms for much of the U.S. How long will this brutal winter weather continue? Well if Punxsutawney Phil was correct, you still have several weeks to go, my friends.

Meanwhile, those of us who left that frozen tundra behind and moved to the Caribbean are also suffering from the winter blues. And aquas. And greens. And you know what? We're really not suffering actually.

For all of you stuck inside of your homes, looking out the window as the snow just keeps on piling up around you, focus on these photos. They'll warm your soul. And then you should probably consider spending all of next winter here instead. You're always welcome!

Maybe next time you can sail away from those frozen winter blues to the warm, inviting ones of the Caribbean.
