Cloudy and warm here in Orlando today. The rain is just starting today and we're trying to decide what to do on our last day in town. :) Might be a Downtown Disney kinda day.

    In SE Tennessee/NW Georgia, the temp is low 50's the rain is pouring down and we are told to expect snow flurries by nightfall.  Should really make for a fun afternoon commute home.

    It is a warm 79 and sunny here in Miami.  No cool weather in sight for a while.
    Cloudy and warm here in Orlando today. The rain is just starting today and we're trying to decide what to do on our last day in town. :) Might be a Downtown Disney kinda day.


    Try NASA at the Cape, there are lots of malls and outlets in the area, the Morse Museum in Winter Park has a great collection of Tiffany glass.  There is lots to do in Orlando that isn't mouse related. :)

    Isn't Winter Park where they have the toy museum?  It's a beautiful little town. 

    At 6am it was 71 degrees, but windy and damp.  Not looking forward to tonight when it's going to be cold and rainy.  I'm taking Mom and the grandkids to the Christmas concert at the school tonight then we'll take a tour of the Christmas lights in that area.

    Since its not windy today, its warm enough to wear capris outside this morning. I am working off of two hours of sleep and have a essay (which only the first sentence done) to write. So far I have yet to have breakfast, but I am about to sneak off get myself a four shot espresso pumkin latte or peppermint mocha latte to fuel me through the day. right now I have 16 hours and three minutes until my essay is due.

    OK... lets give this a try. I am on my smartphone and thought I would see how KB works in mobile mode!

    It is sunny and cold this morning. Temp is still in the high 30's. I am helping my mom at her church with their monthly Sr Adult luncheon. I will be here for most of the day. I will check back in with y'all this evening. Have a blessed day!

    If it's the one I'm thinnking of they moved to I Drive and then closed it.  Winter Park is as close to old Florida as you can get in the Orlando area.

    That's a shame.  It was a great place.

    How times change.  We used to take straight caffeine pills and you get to have peppermint mocha latte.

    It's nasty in Honolulu.  We are having 50 mph winds and flash floods for the next two days.  I've been up since 4:15.  That's when the winds started whistling and the windows started bowing.  We lost power a 6am and just got it back.  DH took a shower and dressed for work by the light of 2 Mighty Brights.  :D  Glad we had them.

    Happy Friday, All!

    41 and finally clearing here in western VA.  On the other hand, this is as warm as its supposed to get today  :-\  I keep telling myself that I just have to get through today at work then I can go to bed all weekend and get rid of this nasty 'flu.  I hope that the nasty weather has stopped for most of y'all, too.

    Morning all,

    32 degrees and we have ice and rain. School is cancelled and for the time being, I am at home too. My son is supposed to come home from college today but will probably wail til tomorrow due to the weather.

    Good Morning all.  Gee the sun just came out!  I don't think that's supposed to last, though:  the forcast is for rain most of the day and not much int he way of warmth.

    Gotta get through the new posts, get in the shower and go off to the craft fair out at Dulles!
