Getting there. It's been pretty cold out here in AB and we got a fair amount of new snow this week. The snowbanks are getting big! At least we got to -12 today with lots of sunshine, which helps. Thinking spring is still quite a ways off. It's a shame we went to WDW in Nov. I could use a trip to FL right about NOW!

You are excited it "got" to -12? We are all complaining that it is -12 here in Toronto! I keep looking at the forecast in Orlando on my weather network app. That's what I do when I am bored. Currently 19C and clear. Will get as high as 30C on Wednesday! Why did my parents leave Greece to move to Canada?

We got up to -9 at the weekend with gorgeous sunshine and talked about BBQing a couple of steak for supper!!
As I shovelled my drive this morning I was trying to focus on the Florida sunshine (12 days!) instead of the fact that I couldn't feel my ears!!!

This is why we haven't to,d our boys that we're going - I can't handle my impatience & my fiancé's constant 'end of work' countdown + two 4yr olds!!

Well, you guys have had some amazing warm weather this winter, haven't you. My SIL is in St Catharines and she loves to report her weather to us!

I think all of us here have Orlando as our default on our weather apps. lol

Bet you're glad you're not still in Greece now. At least from an economic point of view.

SOOOOOOOO boooooooooooored. Winter cabin fever has set in here for the duration, I'm afraid. We should have been leaving for a week in Cuba next week. Not gonna happen, now.

Two weeks ago we got a call from DHs Dr.s office. The surgery that they told him might not be scheduled till March- well, they had a cancellation. So of course he had the surgery. But that means that he can't fly for at least 6 weeks. (It was ear surgery). So I'm really happy that the surgery is over and everything is hunky dory. But no winter vacation at all.

Maybe we can put on our hawaiian shirts and make mojitos and watch a POTC
marathon..... somehow it won't be quite the same.

At least we have our April trip to WDW to look forward to.
