Someone missed the memo

I live in F L O R I D A, which means that 5 days without the temperature getting above 49, and warmest low being 22 is just unacceptable.

I declared last May that cold weather was officially dead to me. So, I'm not sure if the mail room is to blame, or you fax machines are on the fritz...do I need to send the message by pigeon?

This is why I'm so upset, our 5 day forecast:
Wed 45/16
Thurs 49/22
Fri 38/14
Sat 41/9
Sun 47/18

Yeah, did that catch that 9 degree low on Saturday?? Do you know how hard it is for a pregnant woman to find a real winter coat in Florida?? Just about impossible!

But, I have to be grateful that I still have power, and my house is a nice toasty 72 (I had to turn the heat up yesterday b/c Koa's paws were ice cold).

For all my friends that live further north, you have my sympathy...but I really want to move back to Hawaii today. I think I'll play some Bruddah Iz & look through my pictures of those glorious 3 years on the island.

I am so sorry! That sucks! I will cry for you in my 13 degree car.

Yeah, really, you would think that living in Florida would make you immune to getting cold weather there. Ugh!

Cold weather sucks. I feel for you. I hope you can at least get some sweaters and/or blankets to keep warm. You do have a Suggie right? :)

Awwww, poor cold Mary! Time to snuggle on the couch with a blanket :D

It could be worse, you could be HERE with ME, watching a BLIZZARD rage outside...

Eric just got home and told me there is a 60% chance of SNOW tomorrow evening. If it does happen, it would be the first time in over 20 years!

Sounds downright BALMY!
(I live in Utah, my friend, and therefore, I will also judge you for living in a warmer state than I do.)
