Baby, It's Cold Outside!


My mother will start to worry...Beautiful, what's your hurry
My father will be pacing the floor....Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry...Beautiful, please don't hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more...Put some music on while I pour

No fireplace roaring or toddies being poured when I snapped this pic (with my phone).  When I pulled out of the garage, the temperature in my car registered a pleasant 63 degrees.  Within minutes of driving down the road, it plummeted to 39 -- that's unusually cold for Sarasota this time of year.  I like the chilly weather for Christmas shopping but....let's bump it up a bit.

Yes pretty chilly for your corner of the world. seems like yesterday we were seeing balmy photos of outdoor tiki bars over there!

CLAMCO said...

Yes, tiki bars! I need a tiki bar photo! (falls to knees and clasps hands together)

Come on over! 20° during the night and you can imagine the chaos on French roads after the snow yesterday!

Re. your comment: Versailles was the least of my worries yesterday, the avenues had actually been cleared. It was the other part of my drive home that was terrible. I work in the south of Paris and Versailles is in the west of the city... It would normally have taken me about 45 minutes to get back home instead of 4 hours 40. Oh God, I'm still ranting, sorry.

I bet it's very cold in Florida way, here in sweden it's 19 today and snowing again.... we have about 50 cm's of snow as of today.

They showed the cold in Florida this morning on the news. We are suppose to get it this weekend, even though I think its in the 30s outside right now.

You have it good. Yesterday morning it was 23 degrees here which is not only unhealthy for long-time Floridians but outright illegal!

Today is better. It's all the way up to 37 at 8:00! Ugh.

I think I'll move somewhere where it's warm!

I agree with Jacob. Mine dropped to 23 degrees this morning when I left my garage. It's OK once in awhile, but it's been this way all week and next week they say we are going down into the teens. This Florida girl has had enough!

Indeed! I was in SRQ for Thanksgiving and it was a balmy 87°. How quickly things change! Back here on my side of the state, it was a ridiculous 29° yesterday morning. Florida gal whining here.

I much prefer when it's warm.
