This blog is basically just a collection of my "random thoughts". I must warn you, though. I have been told that "I write like I talk", so if you don't understand what you are reading... chances are, if you met me... I wouldn't make much sense to you! Feel free to comment if you care to. Or not. I'm good either way!

Do you feel left out, Florida??
Click here to read the article to where this photo came from.
I was watching Good Morning America and heard George say that 49 out of our 50 states, here in the U.S. have snow on the ground! Even Hawaii, where I had no idea that it snowed there! WOW!
The only state that does not have snow is Florida. It made me wonder if the people of Florida -- called "Floridians" -- feel left out. I know that I have at least one blogger friend that lives in Florida. If you are reading this, Becca, I'd love to know your thoughts!
I am assuming that most of the Floridians do NOT feel left out, as I know that many of the residents of Florida moved there to ESCAPE the snow!! Some of them live in Florida for the winter only. They are called "Snowbirds". I am guessing the name came because they "fly" south for the winter! Haahaa!
Check out this adorable photo that I found when I "Googled" the word... SNOWBIRDS!
Pretty cute, huh??
David grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (The North). He moved to Florida to attend college there and never went back to Philly. He now hates... excuse me... LOATHES the cold weather!! Just the other day, he was complaining about it and I said... "I don't like it either but, there's nothing that we can do about it, is there?" He came back with this response... "Yes there is! We could MOVE!" I, of course, told him that he would then complain because it was too HOT!
The truth is... we both complain about the cold AND the hot!
I wonder if we'll someday become Snowbirds and head south. I wouldn't mind that so much. Then, I could do this.... anytime I wanted!!
Enjoy your warmth, Florida and be glad that you don't have to suffer through this cold white stuff that you are not familiar with called... SNOW!
By the way... our ice has mostly melted, but the temperature this morning is 25, with a windchill that makes it feel like it's in the teens!!! BRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
