k&a&c'smom- you see, unlike most states, CT has one network affiliate for the whole state. Usually the weathermen stand on the left of the screen- blocking us - and tells what is going to happen in the important part of the state. We say it's not news until it's east of Waterbury

Hope both of you are continuing to feel better

Ah...now I understand!

Is Mizners still open as a lounge in the evenings? My DH and I love to have a drink there and listen to the music before dinner at Citricos.

Thanks for the link, those sand pail prints are adorable. I wonder if they are still available anywhere, especially the second one?
Thank you! And your DD's AKL print sounds great! There was one sand pail print at the GF gift shop last month. It was lovely.

I know what you mean about meaning to do things or buy things and then for whatever reason you forget or don't have time. That's how I feel about the Tonga Toast. It was supposed to be a must do this trip and once again, I didn't get to try it, so next trip!

ps. wishing everyone speedy recoveries

No.. from what i hear they are using the area temporarily as a place to get food to go. I've seen pics and the entire place had been cleared of all furniture.

Can you tell me where you saw the pictures? I have a trip coming up soon and am trying to keep track of what is going on with the refurbs. I'd love it if anybody on this board could update us all about what they are seeing!

I have a trip in November and still have gotten no letter from Disney. Weird. If I didn't scour the internet daily, I could have just shown up and been shocked at the closures.

Have a great day!

We are currently driving to WDW, and after 1,000 miles will be checking into the BC in an hour! We are staying at the BC, due in part to all the construction at the GF. However, I am a picture taker and poster so I promise to post pictures this week!

Enjoy your stay, Jungle Cruiser! I hope you have perfect weather and the most magical vacation ever! I can't wait to see you pictures! Not much longer for us either! I'm starting to get the clothes, etc. ready to go -- It is getting colder up here in Connecticut as Fall is rapidly moving in, so the shorts and short sleeve jerseys are moving from laundry into the suitcase!

It was 47 degrees when my dog and I went for our walk at 5:45am today, Butterflygirl! I will actually be a DW on the 1 year anniversary of a freak October snowstorm which left many parts of Connecticut without power for a week or more. I live on a tiny cul-de-sac with only 8 homes, as a result we were last to recover power. I ran my generator for 11 straight days and ended up with most of my neighbors staying overnight to keep warm as it was in the high 30s low 40s every night.

I can't wait to be in mid 80s this year in Orlando!

Sounds like a good time to be in FL! We had that freak snowstorm here in PA as well. It just can't happen two years in a row, right? Right? We could only run our generator twice a day for 3-4 hours each time but we had a parade of people in & out of here to use our showers when we had the generator running. Without electricity, we have no water either! It was just awful.

Due to many experiences of being the last to have power restored, I had my home hardwired and a large generator installed with sufficient capacity to operate everything in my home as if on commerical power. With a 275 gallon fuel tank, I run 18 days nonstop without needing more fuel!
