A Change in the Weather

Last night when I went to bed it was 48°F out. This morning I woke to 8°F with a stiff wind (wind chill -12°F). During the transition that dropped the temperature by 40° in 7 1/2 hours we had sleet and freezing rain. When I left for work, I had to chisel my car out of a fairly thick layer of ice (all at 8 degrees). I leave for Key West in six weeks and five days.

Changes in lattitudes, changes in attitudes.

Brrrrr.

It's headed our way. That sounds like our forecast for tonight into tomorrow!

Brrr... that sounds way too cold to be outside with a chisel. Stay warm and safe.

FC- Right now, you're at the right latitude and I'm not.

cedrorum- I can't even respond to that right now.

Lem- It isn't pretty.

CG- Of course. But I don't expect to escape winter there.

Spo- Can't wait to see you.

Dave- I know. Winter doesn't even start for another five days. And it's gotten even worse since I wrote that.

I can tell you can't wait! Any chance you can convince Leon to make a move to AZ? Real Estate is very cheap right now! You can get an acre of land in Rio Rico for about $11,000 or a little more or less!
