It stays in the 90s for the most part here. It rarely gets above 99, but it doesn't really go below 90 either.

I miss the 60-70 degree weather.

This is all because of man made global warming no doubt.... Or so they will probably say...

The Obama and Gore climate team need to find a way to spin this in order to keep fleecing the Country of billions of our tax dollars.

Boy I hope not. I have no desire to spend months hauling propane tanks and torches up and down ice encrusted catwalks, thawing pulleys, belts, and rollers. And freezing off various anatomical parts while hammering and chipping rock off a couple miles of conveyor belts.
Jeeze, why'd I leave Florida?

Bring on the cold. My wood shed is full and will have 2 tons of wood pellets before cold weather sets in. Heat up some Laird's Applejack and apple juice and pour it in a big mug with a couple of cinnamon sticks and kick back.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Laird's Applejack...now you're talking, doesn't get a whole lot better than that.

Apparently someone doesn't understand the difference between weather and climate.

I don't know about the too cold part....too far below 98.6 can land you on a cooling table.

I live in Florida. Bitterly cold in the winter is when the daytime temps do not hit 60 deg F. Now as an old high school soccer referee, I had some games fall into the mid 30s, which in shorts is colder then a Mother in Law's kiss, but since I am not doing that anymore, I am good!

I live 250 miles North of you and we sometimes get into the 20s or below. A few times in my life it has been in the low teens for several days and it has snowed three times that I remember in the last 50 years. I spent one Winter in Chicago and I can't figure out why anyone would live in that kind of frozen Hell.

I heat with Propane gas and the dealers think it is derived by melting gold. I spend about 4 Finnish model M-39s to keep my butt from freezing in the Winter. For me perfect weather is the few weeks we get in the Spring and Fall where it is low 80s day and mid 60s night.

You Yanks can have all of the snow you desire, I have never seen anything that is more worthless. Dreaming of a White Christmas? Bullshirt! If I ever have the desire for snow, I will stick my head in the freezer until I get snot-sickles.
