I used to think stories about grandparents walking to work or school “uphill both ways” was an impossibility.  That’s because I grew up in FL.  My last job paid 4 dollars a day to those who walked to work.  So this supported my latte-a-day addiction.  But one day in frigid January, with the wind painfully breaking through my gloves, and my lungs closing in on me…I realized I had an uphill walk to and from work.  Two hills, and you’ve got it.  I can’t wait to tell my grandchildren.
