Cold snap for South Florida
« on: December 17, 2007, 12:23:10 AM »
Well SoFla is having it's winter spell.
Right now it is 57F/14C. I mean that is darn cold.
And for the next couple of days it the high only goes into the mid 70's F.
I mean it's cold here people I might have to drink my margarita on the rocks and not frozen.
I fly out to Salt Lake City tomorrow. I have only been there about two weeks and I am already sick of scraping ice and snow off my windshield.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

I never scrape ice/snow off the windshield. I cranker up the vehicle turn the heat on high. Turn on the defrost and go back in to the warm house. A bit later I go out to a warm vehicle and let the wipers wipe off the slush, and away I go.

I would do that but with my luck since it is a rental car in a hotel parking lot. Someone would steal it.

 A favorite pastime of highschool kids. Cold weather  means lots of idling cars in driveays and such. I guess they can't resist the temptation!

Well when I lived in town it would be locked. Two keys or remote are great inventions.

the rental cars don't come with two keys and not all of them have remote's if this one does I will certainly do that.

Well, you can suffer through your cold snap...we've got a warm spell forcasted...it is supposed to be almost 37 by the weekend!!! :roll:

That will almost be balmy enough to put on a short-sleeved shirt!!!  We'll be warming up the margaritas getting ready for it!!! :-D

On the bright side, the kids LOVE the snow and have been playing outside for 2 hours a day, sledding snowballs, forts, etc.
