What part of Florida are you in? I lived in Pensacola for 4 years, but we still had winter there. It didn't get severely cold, but it got into the 40s at night and a few times a year, it got into the 30s. I missed the snow, tho'. We don't get a lot of snow here in NW Alabama, but that's okay. I don't think I'd like shoveling snow! My back couldn't handle that!
Usually by the time it gets really cold here, I'm putting up my Christmas tree. I put it up early--usually around mid-November--because I love it so much and because it's such a huge job, I want to be able to enjoy it for as long as possible!
Thanks for your post! I've been getting lonely in here!
