WHY FLORIDA LOOKS SO GOOD


For those of you who ask,"Why," this is the answer. 3 1/2 feet since Christmas and the heaviest snow period is yet to come.

How picturesque. These photos just make me smile - freezing weather in Florida, so what can I say.

Elizabeth said...

Just think how aesthetically beautiful the snow is, as it settles in for the duration. And, why use the snow blower, or shovel it? This way, you'll be extra happy when spring comes. Besides, Florida is cold, too. Is this global warming, for sure?

Steve Blood said...

You have fallen for the trap. This is precisely why Costa Rica looms large.

Ann said...

Bah, humbug!

Dwight said...

These two photos are gorgeous. Besides tons of bugs in Florida, many foreigners in Costa Rica. Have to become fluent in Spanish in either case.

Steve Blood said...

Si

Judy said...

That word does not qualify you!

Steve Blood said...

so?

Steve Blood said...

OK, I can't find what I was looking for to add to this but does anyone see where we're going here? Think Sunday evenings.

Dwight said...

Does it matter, as long as we keep going?

Ann said...

Sunday evenings? Popcorn, Jack Benny, Amos and Andy, not wanting to think about Mondays, snug as a bug in our little house in Penrose? Oh, you are suggesting that our first writing exercise be Sunday nights???!!! Or am I missing the point?

Steve Blood said...

si, cy, sue, sew... Jack Benny. I couldn't find an audio.

Dwight said...

Steve, can I steal your two photos? I'll give you credit for where they came from.

Dwight said...

Florida is a foreign country. please stay in the US of A.

Good memory, Steve, on the "si, Cy..we would get such a good laugh over that, no matter how many times we heard it, it was always funny. Good to know you speak Spanish. I can see my teaching of "Madre esta viniendo" made a great influence on your education.

Louise Blood said...

P. S. The pictures are incredible. How much snow did you get? Do you have snowshoes?

Dwight said...

I remember "undelay" or however you spell it from the beet fields; i.e., move your self along.

Elizabeth said...

"Ondelay" was surely not a true Spanish word! Of course, we can't leave out skillibutty when we talk about languages, can we? And yes, we always laughed so hard at Jack Benny. Now, we see an occasional TV show, and I wonder where all the fun went.

Ann said...

That Spanish word worked for Steve and me as we rode our super fast bicycles past the migrant workers in the beets. However, we always added "Muchachos " (SP?). If Mother had known what we were doing, I suspected we would have been in big trouble.

Steve Blood said...

Yes, to those siblings who asked if they could use the photos. There are three more of them on my facebook.

Dwight said...

So far I am not your friend.

Ann said...

Me either.

Dwight said...

The pixel level in your facebook post is too low to steal. Can you post the third photo on Penrose? Thank you. These are great winter pictures. I thought Ann was your friend.

Judy said...

What about me?
