Thread: Floridians . . . are you feeling left out?

    Floridians . . . are you feeling left out?

    I read last night that there is snow on the ground in 49 of our 50 US states! All except Florida. 49 actually surprised me.
    Is any of you experiencing your first snow?

    Really? That is crazy! Such a fun fact Kelly. Hope everyone stays warm here in the USA! (and cool down under...and it's surrounding friends)

    That is such a fun fact! I personally would love to be in Florida right about now!

    Wow, really? Hawaii, but not Florida? Old man Winter sure is throwing a hissy this year...

    No, Kelly, this Floridian is not feeling left out. But thanks for asking! I'm basking in our relatively balmy 58 degrees right now heading up to high 60's. I had enough of the snow and cold during the 30+ winters we spent in Minnesota. To everyone else, stay warm and enjoy the snow!

    Patsy, enjoy those 60's for me! Mid 60's is my absolute favorite. :O)

    I read that too! Parts of TX is getting snow. Not here though. We have a warm front--going to be in the 70's today and for the next few days. Have the windows open and the sun is shining.

    I saw that and just assumed somewhere in the panhandle of Florida got snow and that Hawaii was the state that didn't get any! That's what I get for not reading! Our temps are in the mid 60s today and will be back in the low 80s by mid week. It was chilly enough last night that we brought the girls inside. Their crate has been moved to the back porch because they STINK! I'll be glad when they can move permanently to Highclere Coop. They spent today in the run Don built them and loved pecking away at the ground.

    I am quite happy to be snowless, although a fine dusting would give me the day off here! The 50's is my tolerance threshold. Sorry for everyone who is having a rough time right now.

    I might be the minority here, but Boooooooo!! Yes, I am feeling quite left out!! I know we are LUCKY to have such beautiful weather, and Myra is right any talk of flurries we would SHUT DOWN, because we just aren't equipped to handle that!! I would LOVE to have a few snow days and enjoy some snowman making and hot chocolate

    Bailey, it sounds like you need a winter vacation up north!

    The UK hasn't really seen any snow this winter - despite newspapers proclaiming that it would be our worst winter ever (last summer!!). May be they meant the USA!! 49 states out of 50 having snow is crazy!
    We are, however, getting your snow in it's wet weather form. Rain. Lots of it!! And more to come...
    Oh and apparently (they are at it again) the British tabloids are saying we will have a hottest summer!
