Gray, gray, gray and a little breezy about 43 degrees. The snow is almost all gone from the yard. :(

As any Floridian will tell you; If it's cold enough for snow to be visible, it's too cold for me!

70F is the turning point for me. Less than 70F and it's just different degrees of cold to me.

Above 70F and you have a day for walking around in it!

Florida....I love it.

But don't you ever hanker for a nice crisp fall morning so you can go for a walk with just a light jacket on early in the morning? Say about 45F?

No, my walks are at 70F+ It's one of the many reasons I live here. I also love to fish. I'm surrounded by places to fish. Perfect for my retirement. I also love eating fish. That works very well together.

Some of my best afternoons were spent on the bank of a river sitting with a fishing pole. Sometimes I caught something, and sometimes not. It was the peace and quiet I enjoyed most.

34F with a wind chill of 27F. Expecting more snow, but only a couple of inches. At least with the melting that was going on the wind wont be whipping the snow around.
