    You are sooooo spoilt Mary Kay!!;)
    We haven't seen our road since before Christmas, up to 3 feet of snow locally, recent overnight temperatures of MINUS 15C and a wind chill factor that would freeze the nutz off a brass monkey!!!!8-o
    There's a village not too far from us called Cowark which has been cut off for three weeks, farmers have had to ferry food etc using quad bikes. See their story here, 'The Forgotten Village'.

    At the end of our road (a cul-de-sac) is one of the steepest and longest hills around but Suzi just ate it up!

    I lived in Wyoming..so snow is no stranger! But I have to say..if I never see that mess again, I will be happy!
    Today My husband and I drove 100 miles down to Tampa and ran into some sleet..of course it just melted as it hit the road, but still...
    Spoiled, YOU BET!:) I may have to move..souther..

    I've found that it's hard to start fires now that I don't carry lighters... :-(

    I was hoping for that dusting of s now in Brandon - my son would have loved it... Too bad it was in Lakeland... But I read in the paper that it didn't even hit the ground.....

    Shining Wit....just looking at those pics sent shivers up my spine.

    Being reminded of the extreme cold very acutely this past week or so made me realize how much I haven't missed it.

    Looks like tonight, we'll be down to 28o here in Palm Coast, and 33o tomorrow night. By Wednesday, it looks like we may have a reprieve......

    We have a pond out back of our house and a windmill.
    The pond was frozen and icicles were hanging off the blades of the windmill , geez.
    We've been having to run our pool pump to keep the pool from freezing and busting pipes.
    Omg make the cold stop, I can't stand it lol

    We have a small fish pond on our lanai, and because we kept the pump running 24/7, my fishies are OK.......I had a hard time believing it even though I knew why.
    I'm already hunting on my garden site where to find replacements for my hybrid plants, cause even though most plants come back after a freeze, this freeze attack has been too long.
