    My daughter had the right idea and left for Central America last week, just before the weather reports began warning of below zero weather. Sent me a message today that it was kinda chilly tonight - she had to put on long sleeves......poor thing. I had to dig out my long johns......poor me.

    19F here in Everett. Our dog is wearing his turtle neck sweater outside. The only thing that keeps a small dog from freezing up is their metabolism and constant motion.

    I was on a bus many years ago going through (and through, and through) L.A. during the winter, and it snowed! None of us on the bus could believe it, but there it was right outside the windows.... palm trees and snow. I mean a blizzard. Amazing. Now we're in Florida, and the A/C is kicking on this morning at 8AM. One Christmas in Hawaii, we had to come inside to finish our meal because it was so blazing hot outside. Three years ago in New Mexico, just 50 miles from the Mexican border, I rode my bike to get coffee at my hangout in 9 degree weather, w/ snow that had hardened into ice on the roads.

    I'd rather be complaining about the heat than the cold, hence the Florida move. I mean, Florida summers can make you feel like you're gonna die, but Up North winters WILL kill you. I have a photo somewhere around here that shows our thermometer on the back porch w/ the needle at 9 degrees. I hope to never see something like that again as long as I live.

    When one is in Florida in the Summer [I do not believe that people actually live here in the Summer] one can understand what a lobster feels like as it is being prepared for dinner.

    Hmm. Right at this moment mine says +11.3 F (-11.5 C). I just walked up to get the morning paper in jeans and a tee shirt. It's rather nice outside today. Crystal blue skies. Dry as a bone. And the overnight wind has subsided. And dang. It's NOT raining!

    -10 f or so for the last 3 nights here in Castle Rock, CO. Pretty unusual this early in the winter.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Why is it that the hotels in cold climates have the thermostats set so uncomfortably high, and the hotels in warm climates have the thermostats set so uncomfortably cold? Does no one understand the concept of setting 70-72F and leaving it there regardless of what is outside?!
