KLG was back in time for Funday Monday, even though it was difficult to adjust to snow after a week of 80-degree temperature.

"It was chamber-of-commerce perfection until the day I left," KLG sighed sighed of the brochure-worthy weather.

It's hard to come back from non-vacation.

Julieanne Smolinski is a TODAY contributor and New York resident who barely remembers the sun at this point.
