It's warm now. Last week I saw several degrees below zero, and a daytime high of about 4 degrees.

I've got my boat on the hill for maintenance.

No fun sanding the bottom at 35 to 40F.

Actually, no fun sanding the bottom anytime.

Done with that. Talk about being sh!tcovered. And bone chilled.

Yuk.

Going down to 40 tonight at Patrick AFB, Cocoa Beach....been blowing 20 or so since yesterday morning.

Good news is bright blue sky's and the FL sun makes it comfy pretty fast.

But as the customs sticker on the back of my old helmet said ...... "It's better in the Bahamas"...

Wifey B: it's horribly bad cold here right now. 61 degrees and going down to 55 degrees tonight. High tomorrow a shivering 71 degrees. We're heading to NC tomorrow morning though and tomorrow night it will be 25 degrees. Going to be a cold weekend but we'll survive. Highs in 60's.

It's all relative.

Got to several degrees above freezing today, the sun was shining, varied thrushes, fox sparrows, pine siskins, and junco's were singing up a storm, geese were on the wing, the crocuses are jumping up, and when the sun popped out between the clouds you could feel its warmth.

Seasons are great
