Do you know what I just realized.....the only ingredient I don't have in my pantry is Midori! I love a Blue Hawaiian, which is Malibu, pineapple juice and blue curaçao. Woo hoo! That's what I should have drank while watching 11 inches of snow fall today.......

Then on Wednesday and Thursday it was wonderful... sunny and pleasant with low humidity.

THEN it got cold (for Florida). Sunny and a high of 60 degrees on Friday and then cold, cloudy and W I N D Y on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday there were small (tiny really) white cap waves on the lake at the World Showcase. THAT was different.......

What I learned from all of this is that all weather is local.... and the forecast you get on TV and on the internet/phones is NOT. We spent Tuesday waiting for the weather Apocalypse to descend upon us and it never arrived. We should have gone to the parks!

When they talk about the weather in Orlando they mean a large swath that goes coast to coast and is about 1/5 the length of Florida. I'm sure a weather Apocalypse happened somewhere but not in WDW.

I am not going to pay any attention to the forecast and I'm just going to go to the parks and deal with it there.

This concludes your WDW weather lesson for the day.

PS. It was hysterical watching the Floridians turn blue when it hit 60. I saw people wearing full length puffy down coats that looked like they were encased in sleeping bags. This was right next to some Canadians wearing speedos and working on their tans.

Love it!!! It was 35 degrees today here and my DS (10) was wearing shorts when I picked him up from school!!! This is also the same DS who when we were in Disney (Dec 2010) and it got down to freezing the first few nights, failed to pack the jeans I laid out for him. He would not let me buy him a pair of sweatpants, it was Florida and he was going to wear shorts!!!

Thanks for the recipe again!!! I will print and laminate!!! Wonder if I could get a DiSigner to create a drink card with the BC logo

I leave for Disney on Thursday and it's supposed to snow! I'm getting very nervous at this point and I'm praying that its all hype and we'll get nothing but rain! Sunday I'll be newly 21 and at the beach club. I've been waiting for this for so long!

That's so cool!

Have a great time! I think you'll be ok - it looks like TODAY is the day we are getting slammed with this mess of white stuff - perfect timing for you to run out of here to Florida! If you are flying I would call the airline and make sure you are confirmed with a seat because a lot of people are being rebooked due to today's nightmare. Happy Birthday!!!

Thank you! Its birthday week here at my house (four birthdays in one week!) And this is the first year (in 23 years) my sister and brother will not be spending it together....because I'm taking her with me! Hahaha! We're driving down so if anything the drive will be longer than 15 hours...which I can handle because last week I spent 36 hours driving from Texas to Maryland.

Today will be my day of relaxation. I'll be painting my nails and just making final packing checks.

It hasn't really hit me yet that by the end of the week I'll be in disney! Ahh!

Happy Birthday to all! We are north of you in PA staring at lots of heavy white stuff, so I will love vicariously through you and the rest of the lucky dogs headed down in the next couple of days.

Thank you!

So I am NO longer worried about the snow. Its been snowing and raining off and on. Its not sticking to the ground and its supposed to be about 45 degrees tomorrow when we leave. First stop POP and then Sunday BC! Today, we got a phone call...caller ID said DISNEY. I was nervous that they were going to move us! Turns out, they double booked our POR room and it said we had TWO rooms instead of one. LOL I'm so excited to get away from this horrible weather and celebrate in a magical way!

Painted my nails a pretty pink and next I'll go over my packing list! This is my first time on site...first time NOT staying in a rental house...Its going to be so different!
