My main issue is: why does the upper Midwest have to get all the snow! Now don't take this wrong. I understand many of you moved to the sunny south to get away from snow, but wouldn't it be fair to swap climates for a few days? It wouldn't be that hard to swap my snow blower for your air conditioner as long as it wasn't more than a week I could do with a week of warmth (not the "warmth" we have been getting in the 40s but really warm weather - like 80s) right about now. That would do a lot to help me get through the winter. Heck, my house is only 60s!

That reminds me, my Grandson told me "Heck is for those that don't believe in Gosh". He's Narferman on the board.

I sympathize with you. All my orchids have to bloom in the Winter or Spring. I cut off all flower spikes in the Summer. They get supplemental light in the Winter. If they still don't get the message they get shipped off to my cousin in South Carolina.

After the last shipment he sent this message:

"What do you think this is? Guantanamo Bay?

Default I could just SCREAM! Getting cold again!

Well, I was trying to be positive about the weather so I moved a bunch of stuff out to the lanai last week. They've enjoyed a number of nice days out there...and are being moved back into the orchid room because we're expecting cooler temps once again! Low-mid 40s tonight and then mid 30s by Friday night!

Will it never end???


(Thanks for reminding me about this thread, D )
