With all of the storms lately, a new map is being drawn......
That requires a whole NEW wardrobe for you Floridians...
Trade in those water ski's for Snow Ski's!
Trade in those boats for snowmobiles!
Trade in those running shoes for snowshoes!

Chris - I'm sure glad I wasn't drinking this cup of java when I clicked the image - too funny - Hell - ya would never survive. You think it's cold if the temp goes lower than 80 - kind of like Phoenix. :rainfro: :rofl: :rainfro:
I remember when my little bro-in-law's girlfriend came up one fall to N.GA. Born, raised, and had never been out of south Florida...... she was amazed to see that the leaves change colors!

Relocating to North Dakota does not seem like such a crazy idea.
Yep....actually 72 is quite pleasent thank you. I keep my house set at a constant 72, all year round. The other problem with moving the state to THAT location is the lack of sunlight. I'm photo-depressive. I would have to relocate to Galveston or Hawaii (ooo...there's an idea) to get close to the equal number of daylight hours we all enjoy here. I NEED more than 6 hours of daylight in the winter. :rofl: Key West has more daylight hours, year round, then the rest of the country. This part of Florida comes in a close second. One of the pleasures of being in the sub-tropics.
Mel...the leaves change in this part of Florida....one day they are green, next cuppla days they are brown...following week they are green again....just not in the fall. Except right now, everything is brown...from wind burn. Our leaves change in the spring when the new growth starts to appear.
I told you Chris - come on out - check my Balloon Fiesta post and you can see the temp and views. Nice outside right now - 55.
