I want my money back! All funds expended in the state of Florida. I was promised warmth and sunshine. I have been rained on hard! Christmas day and tonight it is going down to 35! I had to go out to the trailer and turn opn the furnace!

I hope it warms up next week or Devoman is going to over at my trailer holding a heat lamp on me!

Looking forward to seeing all of you late next week. I am having the truck checked out tomorrow and I will be stopping at he AS dealer in Alchua(Sp?) near Gainsville to have my Brakes looked at and a couple of other minor things on Jan 4th.

shh ....

Don't let the secret out. Pretend its warm. Most snowbirds don't want to tell their friends the truth so they say its warm and beautiful down south here in FLA. Its worked for years now.

Wink-wink ... nudge-nudge. Don't tell anybody at all that it's gotten above freezing almost every day since last April .... . Next I'll need a live palm tree for our pet flamingo!

Michelle,

It was 77 here yesterday and 74 both days before that. Mid 70's today, a Chamber of Commerce day. Just wait for the Rose Parade on Monday, always another Chamber of Commerce day.

Bill

Michelle, you'll be quite close to us, we are near Alachua and JD Sanders, the dealer you are headed to. Yeah, it's 32 as I type this, but warming to 60 ish later on.

Michelle, I thought you should know, Jacksonville isn't really a part of Florida. We just drew the state border to the North of the city so we could have bragging rights to the largest city in the world, area-wise.
It's 55 here as I write this, and the sun is rising under a cloudless sky. 55 is cold for here, there are rumors the temp may dip as low as 50... If this keeps up, I may have to turn off the air conditioning.

You know, it's been fairly nice/mild here these past few years......one good bi-product of global warming. Of course, if I lived on any of the coasts after watching the history or discovery channels last night, looks like here in Chicago, we might just have oceanfront property at some point.

Nice to see Florida getting it's fair share of winter.

We just picked up Lucy at Sanders in Alachua last week. She was there having wheel/hub service and some minor warranty work. They are really good people who know what they are doing.

Florida, north of the freeze line (about Orlando), gets cold in the winter. It always has. If you want warm in the winter, you need to go way down into the peninsular. When I first left Miami and moved to Tallhassee many years ago, I couldn't believe how cold it got. It still beats shoveling snow a gloomy, cloudy day. Life in Florida is good. The sun is usually shinning and the ocean is always beautiful.

For those coming to Tops'l next week, we have put in an order for especially nice weather.

I'm looking at a beautiful sunset over Lake Ivanhoe in Orlando out my office window right now. Wore a thin sweater to work yesterday and today and have been just a bit too warm in it. Tomorrow, back to just a dress shirt as usual. Probably won't be more than another ten or twelve days all winter that I actually have to wear a sweater or jacket again.

Boy, it did flood on Christmas day, though, didn't it? Down here we don't have many of those nice, soft, day-long rains that make you want to snuggle up in bed all day. We have one hour of torrential downpours and life-threatening lightning followed by sunshine.

Except in the summer, when we have one hour of torrential downpours and life-threatening lighting followed by about 2 hours of skin melting heat and clouds of steam rising from the ground, and sunshine.

Unless it's a hurricane. Then it's 24 hours of torrential downpours, life-threatening lightning and large trees moving from one neighborhood to another followed by several days of skin melting heat, clouds of steam ... oh, and sunshine.

Come on down! We'd love to have you.

bh

Some things I have found out since moving to Florida from Ohio:

1. It costs more to air condition a house in Florida, than to heat a house in Ohio.

2. Home owners and auto insurance is DOUBLE what it is in Ohio.

3. You can get into more trouble with the Florida Wildlife Commission for catching a fish that is 1/2" to short or to long, than you can for committing a felony.

4. There are more Yankees in Florida, than native Floridians.

5. Miami is a suburb of Havana.

6. In Florida, you press 2 for English.

Really, Florida is a great place to live and work. People are fantastic down here. I've made more friends in 3 years than in a lifetime up North. I wish I would have come down here sooner. Doubt I'll ever move anywhere else.

I wonder way....

Is Allstate still not insuring down there? I seem to recall one storm down there that basically had the insurers packing up and running for cover afterward. Seems those companies found a new client base in LA and MS before Katrina, then worked all their loopholes to get out of paying as they had to back around Andrew or whatever the name was that hit Florida.

Good hands my ^&%$@!
