Took some friends out today (they live in the NE) we had a great day, Hope you all are having a warm day.

Love this time of year here at home.

.....beats shovling snow.....thats kinda a low blow for our north eastern brothers and sister forum readers aint it?........I mean the least you could have done is taken a pix of u kicked back in a swim suit with your favorite adult beverage onboard with the calm tropical seas around you.

That's why I got a fast boat!

Seams to me that some of the blizzard country is also hurricane country. It's really too bad for those folks to get a double whammy. Just doesn't seam fair.

The shoveling snow comment was from the two aboard that had 24+ inches in the ground back home. I did not mean to gloat (really ) about my northern friends and their winters. I just hope a bit of sunshine was sent via electrons and my hope for an early spring.

The 90+ summer is on the way to us, then I envy you northerners.

Forida humidity would kill me in the summer. I have never been down your way cause of that. I plan on doing it one of these days.
Actually the cold is like freeze dried. It gets so cold that there is no water in the air and it hurts to breath. The northerners don't seem to notice this but i sure do when i go visit
