Well...De frost am on de punkin today. Be glad that you aren't coming to Tampa until the weekend. It should be only a little cooler than normal by then.

Today it's C-O-O-O-L-D, with forcast lows in the 20's.

Cold air is more dense, and provides more lift when flying my little airplane. It's so cold today that it took off by itself. (And it was still roped to the tie downs) :D

....I gotta move south.

Leon it's not cold till it has a minus sign in front of it! We predicted to get to about -8 or possibly lower tonight but I've seen worse. The weekend we moved from Minnesota back to Wisconsin 23 years ago it never got above 0 and the lows were around -30 without the wind chill! Now that's cold!

Actually supposed to freeze tonight down here in Naples. 50's here today. Have the plants covered as best I can. Gonna be back into the 70's in a day or so. Look forward to meeting some of the forum regulars in Tampa. I've been taking a break from the DWF and lurking here from time to time of late.

My furnace just gave up the ghost tonight....I thought it was just a little chilly until I looked and it was about 55. I went down to the studio and got a couple of space heaters to get me through the night.

Hey Michael, DON'T TEMPT FATE !!! You never know. Can you imagine a repeat of San Antonio in Tampa??? It could happen (no one expected to be iced in in San Antonio either). How much were you delayed in San Antonio? we got stuck only one extra day.

My plane left San Antonio as scheduled, Wednesday.

I am visiting relatives just south of Sarasota - 35 temps now. Warming soon.

We always stay an extra day at the convention city to take in all the sights, so it was no problem. Wednesday was a bit crazy at our hotel because noone had a place to stay the extra night. I felt sorry for the registration desk that day.

This One-upsmanship reminds me of that British comedy group trying to "better" each other as to how poor their family was.

We went from below zero last week to 50s this week and a very rare outbreak of tornados Monday in the southern part of Wisconsin. Only the second time in 100 years Wisconsin has had tornados in January. Back to temps in the low 30s and snow today. That's more like it!
