Sweet, enjoy. I just got back and enjoyed every second of it, I am sure you will too.

I love it! A thread titled "Leave me alone!" Followed by a dozen posts :D

The wind chills in the Dallas/Fort Worth are supposed to be in the -1 degree range tomorrow. Dallas?! :o :shock:

We went to "The Forgotten Coast" back in June - Carrabelle, Appilachicola, St. George's Island, and environs. It was fabulous. My oh-so-logical wife complained about the humidity ruining her hair but still talks about moving there to open a bed and breakfast. :roll:

Damn, -1 in Dallas. Glad I'm a little further south in Austin. It was in the 70's just the other day.

Enjoy the escape from the white devil powder.

This winter has been crazy. Not only was the wind chill waaaay low, it snowed - again. There were 50 accidents in Rockwall (not a very big town) alone and hundreds in DFW. The news all day showed the usual multitudes of accidents, traffic backed up even worse than usual, etc. A good day to stay in bed, in other words, except for the two furry-legged critters who needed to go out, one of whom is a terrier mix who loves this kind of weather. Plus it costs me a day's work whenever it happens. And for those of you who laugh and point out the foot-plus snowfalls north of here, remember that the coating of ice on the roads is still ice, and most people here don't know how to drive on it... :( :shock: :o

So Florida...ah, Florida.... :P

I appreciate the offer Mel. Unfortunately it was a quick trip and I just go home. That first blast of warm air as I exited the FLL airport felt so good. I rented a fire engine red Challenger and drove up the highway with the windows down and the radio up. Back to reality and 32 degrees.

SNIPES <> "WARM".?! It's 79 today, and it feels a bit chilly, to be honest.

Glad you're back safe.
