    Default It is COLD in Florida!

    Well, at least there is sunshine! Left Oregon for "warmer" weather and yesterday was colder here than at home! Either way it is wonderful to be here!

    Rise of the Resistance is awesome! Could do without the plexiglass but so grateful we got to ride it! Had a great cast member who interrogated us!

    Anyone else planning on being here? We leave the 16th. John you should come down for a quick trip!
    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow!

    Cool From My Perspective...

    I always chuckle when I hear Floridians complain about the cold weather. Any temp below 50F and it's "too cold" to do anything. Hey, come spend a winter here in MI - 4 to 5 MONTHS of temps below 50F, as well as the normal winter stuff - snow, ice, sub-zero wind chills (and sometimes actual temps!), car frozen to the driveway, mounds of cleared snow higher than a house, etc.

    Don't get me wrong, I love this state & all the great seasons we have here, but that stretch between Jan. 2nd & April I could hibernate through. Tried a mid-winter break in FL one year & it was great! - until I had to return to MI & deal with the winter climate again. I remember returning from that trip to the aftermath of a 9" snowfall the previous day. The drive home from the airport was dicey at best, and when I reached my house there was a 2 foot drift covering my driveway. I couldn't even get my car off the street until I shoveled it out, thinking all the time that less than 12 hrs. previously I was sitting on Main Street in my shorts & t-shirt eating a Casey's dog in the 80 degree sun...

    ...or maybe it's just a perspective thing.
    First trip, Christmas 1971.
    Last Trip, Oct. 2017 - ICOT20!

    Brad - this is why we moved - to escape all that stuff!!

    So, when it's in the low 50's or 40's here in SC - we're like - where's the 60's and 70's!

    For the Oregonian who posted this, it was much colder than we expected. Monday was even colder than Sunday. Low in the 30s brief high of 52, wind and rain.
    However the rest of the trip was wonderful! Upper 70s to low 80s no humidity.

    Over all a wonderful trip!

    Sadly back to cold, wet dreary Oregon winter weather. But there is always the next trip to look forward to!

    There's a reason people aren't flocking to live there. :P
    I'll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge.
