Like my dad used to say, youth is wasted on the young. Better to enjoy youth on the other side of 50 when you know enough to appreciate it.

Naps are wasted on the young too.

This is when you wish you had a heated boat house so you could go down to the boat and tinker all winter or perhaps an escape plan further south.

Tomorrow will be the day when my beloved dock mates here in Harbortown, Fort Pierce, (members of the E Dock Navy) will be heading to the bathroom in their only wrinkled up hoodie, their long pants both fished from the bottom of the drawer, red nose sticking out, jaws clenched, fists in hoodie pockets and shoulders scrunched forward. A comical sight indeed!

First meaningful cold front is always a hoot

Wifey B: Football in the snow in Buffalo. Lousy way to play but sure can be entertaining. Most teams just try to run it but I'd pass pass pass pass pass as you know where you're going and can get there but the other guy is gonna slip and slide and fall. You old dudes may remember a game before I was born when Joe Kapp proved you could pass in the snow big time for the Vikings. I've seen that on one of the Espn shows or something and they didn't even have heaters. Well, except one player did carry a rock wrapped in a towel out from the sauna and they all got around it and hid it from the coach. Of course a lot of guys got frostbite like the ice bowl.

I prefer bikini weather.

Winter in South Texas

Lets see. Snow in south Texas, and Louisiana and Mississippi. They're going to send a democrat to the senate from Alabama. Can't be anything else - Hell just froze solid!

Wifey B: I didn't see it. Of course I wasn't in Miami....or anywhere yet, since I wasn't born yet.

I read by 9:30 AM it was a distant memory and officially since it was an immeasurable amount, it's called a trace and doesn't exist.

That must have been a shock to all the people who had never seen snow.

Not born yet? OUCH OUCH OUCH.
You are correct, only flakes. If I recall correctly, one person died no doubt the cold.
