Hi Zig

I sincerely hope you come out OK - this weather is getting very tiresome. I'm a technogeek not a survivalist so I need electricity (and Internet) to be happy. Plus I'm out of firewood and when you try to get more around here, they just chuckle.

Hi Ted,

Hey, What would we do without our desktops and internet? I think I'd go nuts.

As I'm sitting here typing away, I'm also looking out the window watching the snow fly and listening to the wind howl. Yikes, it's really coming down.

To keep me from going nuts, I start looking at photos taken while I'm in Florida. This is one taken this Spring with the E510 and it reminds me of how much I love the colors and clouds in the sky in the Keys. When there I'm usually up by 4:30am. i walk out the slider and sit down on the dock waiting for the sun to get up in the sky. this is what I typically see:

Zig, you're killing me.

That's a beautiful and peaceful scene.

My azaleas do not appear to be in bloom yet.

Hey zig, who are you kidding, based on the time of your past posts to the Oly forum, you probably get up at 4:30 every morning no matter where you are! LOL!!

Tullio: okay, but it will probably be the same temp in the middle of the summer there!! I've spent enough time in SF to know that Mark Twain was right: "The coldest winter I ever spent was one summer in San Francisco." !!!!

Hi Steven,

Actually, at home, I'm up typically around 4. I allow myself to 'sleep in' when in Florida

True but fortunately I live in San Jose, so I guess I get the best of both worlds. In the summer we get in the 90's and even 100's.

One of my colleagues lives in the Birmingham, Alabama area. He reports that they have 4" of snow down now and the whole state is shut down.

I think this is all Zig's fault, for dreaming about the Florida Keys.

PS: Right now we're being entertained in my neighborhood by the sound of huge articulated front loaders moving snow. But it's a good sound.
