Sitting at my mCjine toes cold and fingers cold
you would think I was back in new england.
Turn on the heat! 


Hey Mike......we've had steady snowfall since last week. Temps in the teens and 20's  :(. Want to come up north?  ;D

I flew down to Fl. last Friday to drive back with my daughter. FL. was chilly, but no snow. Half way back, I wanted to turn around...hahaha!

My wife is from Tampa, and we use to spend some holidays there before her mom passed away. I've never felt anything real cold, but you could always tell I was the out-of-towner. It would be in the upper 60s or low 70s and I'd be walking around in shorts while everyone else had pants and even light jackets. Nothing beats the year we went over to Indian Rocks Beach on New Years day and I was the only idiot in the Gulf (I'm still recovering from that one and it was 11 or 12 years ago now)!


It's brown here and it's cold!  I take the dog out every morning about 4:45-5 AM and I am wearing a heat and gloves.  This week has been the one where I traded in my polar fleece jacket for my winter parka.  Wool socks and my "winter shoes" have been in use for a month and half now.  But I need to replace some of the socks. 

If you're not used to chilly/cold temps. I think cold snaps are a lot harder to take. 

Split some leather, Mike.  Turn up the heat, bein' cold sucks. 


Feel for ya Mike!  I hate the cold but tolerate it here in Illinois.    My hubby runs to FL every week and was in Boca on Monday.  Our standard joke  is about him in the warm weather while I freeze, but this week he said it was  "Freakin cold down here! I had to get my long sleeve shirts out and turn the heat on in the truck"...     :-[   
   Laughter does a heart good, like a medicine...  Laugh often.  Cry when you need to...  but Love always.


I figured you turned up your air conditioner Mike and left the door open. :)

Been in the 20's at night here, about 70 miles North of you.

   Tonight, our company is having it's annual Christmas party with a Hawaiian theme to it and we are suppose to dress up to the occasion. I am going to wear a Hawaiian shirt with a long sleeve thermal underwear beneath it!

I went down to check on a boat i was supposed to have covered a couple of weeks ago
and the birds were walking down the river !!

Mind you i love the ice cracking sounds as the boats bump into it on their moorings.



Rich I used to lime the sound of the big lake freezing. 
As the ice expanded it cracked. At night. It sounded lime thunder almost echoing in the valley off the mountians.

QuoteI wonder hows Darren's doing?

It's not too bad yet. day time highs are down around - 16-21 º C which is around 3 or so º F and only -25-28 at night. Winds have been low so it's quite livable. But as Gale said; winter ain't here yet. Lock and load.

Quoteyou would think I was back in new england.

I'd gladly ship you down a pair of my  long johns (you probably threw yours out when you moved) , but I don't know what you would do for the other foot.  8) Or have you lost that much weight ( and height ) since your stroke that you can wear my size? :P

Have they restricted your diet as much as they did John's? I'm the last guy qualified to offer advice on weight gain; but I'd say potatoes (or potatoes) . Spinach may have worked for Popeye, but the rest of us need the "Irish power pellet" . I forget which side of the line it was , but one of our potato marketing board directors just finished 60 days of nothing but power pellets to prove how healthy they are. Media reports say he was fit as a fiddle but his tongue really really wanted a close encounter with a steak.

Same here this morning , except for the MINUS part. Last time I went out for a smoke it was -32 º C or 26 below F. North wind at 6 MPH (9 km/h) , so still pleasant.
