A few more. I realize most of you guys get snow all of the time, but this is pretty interesting to us down here.

Wifey B: Freaky. It's wintery here on the west coast of FL. I just saw that the high Sunday in Key West is only going to be 67 degrees. That's a panic situation.

I love snow but not cold. Last snow for me was winter 2013-14. We got in a snowball fight in Seattle with two teenage boys. It was so much fun. We were there waiting for a flight out and saw the snow and decided to take a walk. Well, these two kids decided it would be cute to throw a snowball at these two passersby. Hubby and I looked at each other and then hubby announced, "Game On." We started throwing, dodging in and out of behind trees. All four of us ended up soaked. At that point their mom stepped out to tell them she made hot chocolate, but she snapped "what are you two doing?" One said, "Having a snowball fight. What does it look like?" (I liked his style..stupid question deserves it). She asked who we were and they said, just some people who were walking by. Well, we got invited in for hot chocolate too. She couldn't believe they threw at strangers but more that it didn't bother us and we had fun.

I've been where when it snows a little, none on the ground, kids will scoop it off cars to have a snowball fight.

I had so much fun. The others traveling with us asked where we'd been when we got back to the hotel. We said, "just down the street a couple of blocks for a snowball fight." They said "You two are crazy." I said "duh."

It's all that danged global warming or climate change or whatever you want to call it.




Great video. Snow's fun when you only get it every few years. More than that and it's a PITA.

Wifey B: Oh, I thought maybe it snowed upside down in Mississippi. Just thought, shouldn't it do so in Australia, sort of like toilets flushing backwards?

The weather folks are saying we will get mid 40s in Ft Lauderdale area.
I'm sure that will bring a frown to the tourists' faces.
I may have to wear long pants and maybe even socks.

Wifey B: Frown to my face too, so I'm further south for a few days. Going down to 58 degrees here Sunday night and that's cold enough.

Omg, I can't remember the last time I wore long pants. Maybe in NY, on the Erie Canal, May 2016.

I think the tourists from North will still look at what they're missing there and not feel quite so bad.

Geez you wimps. Forty degrees is still short pants weather in Maine.

But just to be on the safe side, am heading to Fl next week.

Not long before we moved to Maryland in 2001, recorded 125 inches of snow in one winter, this in New Hartford in the NW corner. That's 10 feet folks. Further west and north probably got more.
