Default And God said...

... "Let there be snow" and, ye verily, it snowed.



And it snowed


And it snowed even MORE



And God said, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! This is pretty cool!"

Gary,

The snow looks great looking through YOUR window!!!

God is also messing around a bit with the folks down in Florida. I spoke to a friend of mine who winters in the Florida Keys (Marathon). The high there today was around the mid 50's. Supposed to stay that way for the next few days........

Yeah, from what I understand the "Deep South" is getting pounded.

I don't know about the DEEP South, but NORTHERN South sure is.

I know that compared to you guys we are lucky, but we are not used to the extended cold down here. Trust me fellows, for middle Florida, we are getting pounded with cold weather here. I've already lost a bunch of flowers to the overnight frost and ice. And we've had delayed morning flights out of Tampa because of ICE!!!. The Tampa airport does not have any de-icing equipment, so the early morning flights could not depart until the sun melts the ice. Still, I'm thankful that we are not as cold as you guys, but you are better equipped to handle the cold weather up there.
Now that I'm older, the cold seems to affect me more than in my younger days.
Gary: those shots made me feel colder just looking at them.

(I've lived and worked in the cold, and moved back to Florida to get away from it! LOL)

You have my sympathy, and also I'm concerned about the crops and the money folks who are raising them will lose. Plus, frankly, I hate to be without oranges in the winter up here...

Hi Steven,

I now how you feel. The Winter has never bothered me up here in New England. But, each year I get less and less tolerant of the snow and accompanying cold temps.

For the first time, my wife and I rented a condo in Marco for the month of March. I'm starting to count the days already......................

My husband has decided that since we are not far enough south to avoid snow, that it must be time for us to move to Aruba.

I am near Mobile, AL. We have the potential to receive a light "snow shower" at 4am in the morning. Please, God. No snow. Please?

Hey, snow is fun. You can go sleigh riding, build snowmen, have snowball fights, build snow forts, and um... uncover your car, shovel your sidewalk, freeze your @ss, slip and fall, get into car accidents, get your tongue stuck on metal posts. Uh, I guess what I meant to say is that snow sucks.

Errr HATE to spoil yer fun...but here..in sunny Okanagan BC..we are enjoying a lack of snow like I haven seen. And the 6 inches or so we had..melted to about 2. Rain was the order last week.

Tho we are a little cold..the rest of the province and indeed canada is in a deep freeze!

I guess we can blame A Gore and Global Warming for THAT.

I wonder what Florida thinks of the vote counts now...
