I always feel bad for visitors who come to Florida from cld areas and then it is cold here.

I have always thoght the cold here is worse than the cold up north, something about it makes my skin sting.

Lake Bonny? we have a storm coming thru tomorrow that i hope stays south of us for most part but forecast to hit mid-50's by the weekend. We're planning on taking a nature hike of sorts to try out the new DSLR we finally bought. Went with the Nikon D3100, couldnt pass up the price of a refurb (with extended warranty) thru adorama. Now need to pick up the zoom, not sure whether to pick up the 55-200VR or the 55-300VR (way pricier).

i don't care how cold it is, just hope to avoid that monsoon we ran into last year. Only the 2nd time we've hit such foul rainy weather during a trip there.

SWA released schedule that encompasses HHN. I'm booked, now we 'have' to go.

BonLee always comes out the winner when it comes to cold and snow falls.

a big to


toddinboston for being the newest homie here !!


todd, btw, i adore that name, used it on my 4th born son but he doesn't have boston as his middle name.


that really sucks being on vacation and have it 80 then facing a frost warning.


i'm betting you didn't have gloves with you on that trip.


be sure to hang out here awhile, we love noobies!



i'm sure the other homies will come along and welcome you here too.

Hi toddinboston................We once had our last day around the 7th Nov and we headed to Downtown Disney at 7.30 to check in our luggage for our flight home and it was freezing cold!!! It was strange heading out of the airconditioned RPR and it was colder outside for a change!!

All the VA staff had on coats, hats and gloves on and we were stood in shorts and thin tops. It was not what we expected

I hate the cold


Got our Orlando car hire booked today. Like to get things organised early.

Full size SUV, we do enjoy driving over there. In fact it`s the only thing we ever argue over.......who`s turn it is to drive in Florida

It`s my turn to drive to Clearwater this year

Man, my kids would be dancing if school was closed today. Right now the sun has been out all morning and will be most of the day. Cold though, in the 30's F. Storm tomorrow, but snow or rain that won't be much. Just enough to be annoying. And of course, my Dsis is flying out tomorrow night. I told her the storm was just for her! She hates turbulance.

it extends our school year when they have weather closures up here.
there are 4 built in "snow days" but they are long gone.

for this make up date, spring break ends a day early.
back to school on monday 4/1.

our schools really never close due to weather but this closure was decided last night due to the road conditions that would occur.

the district feels that it would be a danger with the bus system that brings the teens to school.

btw, we have shoveled 2 times since noon.
will be heading outside again soon.

that is because your area knows how to handle snow and they take care of it immediately.
they get an A+

a good reason to live in canada, roads are kept up regularly !!

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

We had an inch or two of snow fall and stick to the grassy areas today. Luckily I am headed down to the Darkside and stuff in the morning so I can leave this all behind!
