    It's freezing here in Longwood fl. I can't believe it. I am going to knit tonight as my studio is a bit cold.

    How are my Floridian sisters doing in this cold weather. How is it working out for yah! lol

    I am getting in my nice warm bed with my Molly and hubby can join me if he wants to lol, but I am sure he is going to be watching his games and races in his room until later.

    I am going to take a rest from the christmas diamond star quilt, It has made me tired lol.....knitting will be a nice change tonight...

    I HATE COLD WEATHER - that's why I moved to FL to be warm- I can't believe it is going to be below freezing tonight
    I am in bed with my lap top & a cup of coffee, trying to stay warm.

    Thinking about putting a fire on as well.

    Have to take my grey's out later - not looking forward to it.

    I lived down there for thirty+ years and I miss it until now. Warmer weather I'll be singing it again! Best thing about weather in FL it does not usually stay one way long. But here in NC, it's been a freeze for two weeks or better. I'm sooo tired of it, brrrrrr.

    Blessings

    Sorry you folks in Florida are so cold. I can't believe how far down south the snow and cold has gone so early this year. I'm in Southern NH and we have had no snow yet. One morning last week, it was 8 degrees, when I got up though! I don't mind the cold, cuz I can always get warm. Don't like the snow too much if I have to get to work or somewhere else and drive through it. My avatar has found the warmest places in the house by now. She is such a comfy seeker! I hope your cold spell does not last too long!

    My son and his harem are freezing in Miami. My 2 DGDs are actually using the afghans I made for them. My DIL doesn't have any blankets. At least she didn't have any when I was there 2 yrs ago and it got down to 32* at night! I've learned to pack light and heavy pj's :roll:

    Had to wear my "long johns" to walk the dog this morning in Mt. Dora. The wind was frigid and it never stopped all day long.
    Heading to Ky. on Wed. Will probably hibernate while I'm there.

    Still freezing in Central FL - Although I am cold- My hearts goes out to the farmers - if it goes below freezing- it could destroy all their crops

    Official snow day in Florida tomorrow. Time to dust off the real shoes and find a pair of socks that haven't dry rotted. Flip flops aren't going to cut it. Well, at least until Friday when it's back to 75!

    We broke a record today in Tucson Arizona. Previous high was 79 degrees. Today was 84. But we are promised more seasonal weather in a few days. At least that is what the weatherman says.

    Got up this A.M. and it was 23 out. We moved here to get away from the cold. We usually don't get this until mid Jan. and only for a few weeks. I wonder if this means spring will be here early? Yeah, right!! I'm in the NW panhandle. Burrrr, my arthritis is really aching today.
