Jim misses his pals, Jersey storytellers and real pizza (ok, we have located one place that makes a fair pie). Charlie misses his classmates from his old school (and likes the company of the many new ones he now has). I miss everyone in Jersey City (it is good to be teaching (digitally) for Rutgers!).
There's constant talk of the drought in California as it has not rained since Charlie had that rain day in December.
But it's hard to complain about January bike riding.
