After 60 years of life in Florida
I have been there many holidays but my personal record was a whole year. Let me tell you: I can't imagine 60.

It used to be a nice place to live, but isn't anymore. South Florida has made Forbes 10 worst places to live list for the past three years. This year The three south Florida counties each grabbed a spot in the bottom ten list.

This morning it was 22 F, about -5 C, and everything outside is white......guess I'm not in Florida.

Have you seen Cocaine Cowboys? Those were the days.

Oddly enough my main problem with Miami is the huge number of Latinos living there. I just find them annoying. Though I love Cuban sandwiches I despise most of the rest: music,gold watches, language ....even haircuts. Haha. Maybe I'm a snob. Also, the decline of the city comes as no surprise to me but I can't talk about politics here. Not interested in politics anyway, if some place goes to hell I move elsewhere.
I have family there though.

Rumor has it that a winter storm is coming to the lower Great Lakes Wednesday night through Thursday morning. One computer model shows up to 30 inches of snow.

Dude, you're Spanish. That's Ur-Latino.

I don't like Miami for the weather, but the Cuban immigrant community there has been a huge asset to our country- by and large successful and well-educated.

This Latino spent the day running around like a mad chicken doing some last minute shopping, but it was 70 degrees and sunny. Perfect day? Pretty darn near here in the Austin, TX area!

Local TV here is guessing that the rain starts on Wednesday, and the Snow starts on Thursday. TV claims 6 to 12 inches.

No rain (and that would be thank god), no snow expected to fall (plenty on the ground already) and an expected low of -28 C with a wind chill of -35. I think it will be a perfect day to stay inside tomorrow and work on the rebuild of a Dynaco ST-70 with Classicvalve.ca boards.

But as those in British Columbia's lower mainland always say (again, and again and again).... you don't shovel rain.
