Pure Florida


So not. Our rental car is from Florida, and I thought that FC and Thingfish might appreciate the irony. It's been snowing much of the day here on Cape Ann. We had no place we needed to go and nothing much that we needed to do. It was quite enjoyable.

Pure Clever!
I wish we had some of that snow! I had the A/C on in the JEEP when I went into Walmart today and the heat on when I came out. The temp dropped pretty dramatically!

The Pure Florida moment is fine, but if you start making bad puns like FC does, I'm gonna have to take you down.

Sure is pretty there, doug. That Florida car must think it took a really wrong turn somehwere.

FC- Glad you enjoyed it. I thought of you as soon as I noticed that the snow-encrusted license plate was from FL.

Lem- Thanks. The lane is the street that I grew up on. It looks like more of a little country road in the picture because it hasn't been plowed yet.

Pablo- Nobody can make bad puns like FC does.

Spo- Yes, I've posted pictures of my old house before. It does feel like a very traditional Christmas at the moment.

Tarun- Thanks and welcome to the Tapestry.

Robin- It is pretty. I feel kind of sorry for the car.

It's a real winter wonderland! Perfect for Christmas. Pretty much the same here right now.

BTW, butterflies are posted. Come and see!

Florida. This is not what it looks like on the brochure Doug. Merry Christmas

That looks sort of treacherous to drive on. Be careful.

 
At 22:13, Blogger Doug Taron said...

Celeste- Hope you are all having a good time in my absence.

Kathie- You have a merry Christmas, too.

Roy- True. OTOH, it looks exactly like a New England brochure.

Robert- We northerners are used to these driving conditions. All better now, anyway.

A true winter wonderland. Brings back memories of home - love the scene but quite glad not to be experiencing the cold! Have a happy holiday.

Hello Doug. Poor you. I always imagine Florida to be blue shys and sunshine and here you go and get snow!! :) Well maybe it won't last too long and you will get warmer weather. Chicago has to be the coldest place I have ever been.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I have answered your comment.

Enjoy your holiday!!

Dave I hope you had an excellent holiday.

Bev- Thanks. I hope that you enjoyed your Sonoran Desert Christmas.

Joan- Welcome to the Tapestry. Only the car is from Florida. I'm in New England where this kind of weather at Christmas is (mostly) eagerly welcomed.

A cold part for sure especially with the recent storms there. So stay safe and warm this winter. :)
