I know what you're thinking.  It's winter; snow days are not unheard of.  Well, they are in FL my good friends.  I'm also starting the think FL is bipolar.  It's 67 degrees today and ice and snow tomorrow?  It's time to get some meds.  I think FL should keep an open mind about this.  I'll let it go for now.

I can't help but be excited and amused about all the hub-bub.  Of course, this isn't the type of weather we prepare for in winter here.  We do get out the cotton gloves, beanies and groovy scarves made by people with more talented in artfully tangling sheep wool than ourselves.  But that's about as far as she goes.  Humidity and hurricanes we can handle.  Snow?  That's crazy sauce.  The Sunshine State doesn't do snow.

You can tell by the way local Wal-Marts are quickly becoming the 4th level of hell.

I am hoping that all this is for something.  How cool would a snowball fight in FL be?  Crazy, amazing cool!  It's so rare that I would just love to have that memory with my girls.  It's hard to just have crazy fun anymore.  You really have to fight for it, or wait for a freak snowstorm in FL.  It's gonna be good.  Cold, but good.  If the ice crystals reign down, you can be there will be pictures.  And hot cocoa.  and marshmellows. and maybe a hot viking by a roaring fire...whoa...I digress.....
