From -27 to -27



The morning that my lovely wife and I left New Hampshire it was twenty seven below zero. Yesterday I checked the weather at home and it was twenty seven below zero. That's not a lot of progress, is it?

Here in Florida it's been raining, but you don't have to shovel rain. In fact recently Florida was one of the few states that did not have snow on the ground. That's one brutal winter.

To pass the time dad and I have been doing some repair work on his trailer. It's a nice double wide, but like most trailers build three decades ago, the floors need attention. Over the years most of the floors have needed work done. Since I've been here to help him we've fixed the floor in the spare bedroom and today we did the hallway. The van is great for hauling building materials, so that's a big plus.

Rain and dense sea fog keeps us land bound. I'm getting anxious to get the little boat out on the water again. We'll be near some boat ramps when we go camping so that should work out -weather permitting.

Sometime next month we'll be heading to Texas to visit the in-laws. There's some interesting lakes in rivers in East Texas. Years ago I paddled some of them in a canoe, and it'd be great to explore them again.

After Texas our plans are pretty open. Our path home may very well be determined by the weather. We are no hurry to return to freezing temperatures.

    1. If you don't have sunshine a little moonshine helps.

  2. Snow on the ground here in GA with more predicted to come. Been getting some quilting and knitting done. Luckily got wood in just in case the power goes out again. This is definitely NOT my favorite time of year. Hope the sun shines on you soon.

    1. I wear flip flops most of the time. Too lazy to wear my strap on sandals.

      Enjoy your visit. Say hi to your folks for me.

    1. I'm sure I'll get by without them. Ice houses have gone out of fashion so we've adapted.

    1. Freezing fog sounds like a good excuse to stay home and sip hot coco.

  9. Well here in NW Florida at 11:30pm it's 46 degrees and 96% humidity. It's been miserable windy cold. The temp hasn't been bad, but the humidity with the wind makes it miserable. It's blowing out of the NNW at 7mph.

    I didn't even take my customary 20 minute brisk walk.
