We get most of our weather from Cleveland, it's like ordering takeout.... Dumb as it sounds, I love storms, and dollars to donuts I'll be wandering around in the middle of this one later today. Go buy a ribeye or something else I don't need with five different kinds of meat in the freezer....Hmmm, think I need an extension cord...

last night thru this morning we received 2 inches of ice, then 6 inches of snow, capped by a coupla more inches of ice!

i have huge blisters on my hands from chopping it all away.

it was so solid, even my 220 lb wide load could walk across the top of it without sinking in.

on the brighter side, i got a good parking spot at work because all of those wee cars without 4wd can't move, let alone park in a foot of snow and ice.

tomorrow, i'm gonna chop out large blocks of snow and make an igloo for my boy in the back yard.

I'm almost afraid to say it's 72 sunny, with an occasional breeze that reminds me of why I live in Florida. It's killing me to be inside today.

not just florida, renee, but the most beautiful part of florida as well.

i love the fort myers, sanibel/captiva area. dw and i used to (and hope to again soon) vacation on sanibel every year. our favourite place was the casa ybel. i hope it wasn't too badly damaged in the past few years' storms.

i hope to build a vacation home on my property in port charlotte, someday.

so, go ahead, rub it in. i'll see if i can chuck a snowball that far...

It would probably melt berfore it go this far, I'm afraid. The landscape of the area's you mentioned have changed some,but, the spirit of the islands remain. Casa Ybel is a very nice area to stay. Leave the snow and come on down, Buckytom.
