Default Greetings From Sunny Fla!

Guess we didn't move far enough south. This was 7:00 this morning on our back porch.
Only got to low 40's yesterday! Tried painting a couple small parts to keep from writing off entire day. Brought parts and paint in night before to warm up. Took to garage only long enough to spray then right back in house to dining room table and kitchen counters. (should have seen the Mrs when she got home last night )
Paint is STILL soft after being inside all day and all night!
Going to local Goodwill this morning to buy work PANTS as I have none!

I'm from Ohio but have been down here long enough I've turned to a sissy! Only got to mid 40's here yesterday and I wouldn't even go out side! If I was still in Ohio and it was mid 40's in April I'd of had the boat behind me on the way to the lake!

There is a fountain with aluminum Dolphins in it on the backside of the State Capitol building. Today, there is ice running down 2 of them with no sign of melting.

34 this morning according to the truck. Frost on the ground in Tampa this morning. WTF?!

W/E looks good, though, for some boating!
