Default Iced car

Went outside to get my newspaper this morning at 5:30am and my car windows were covered with ice. Don't let that scare you who have not moved here yet--it will be in the 70's later today and the 80's next week. ;D
I LOVE The Villages!!!!

Hey, I just uncovered one of those scraper-brush thingamajigs among the stuff in my garage as yet unorganized. (Why did I move that down here?)

Anyway, I can send it over if you need it. I thought for a second I'd sell it in the neighborhood garage sale. But who would buy it? It's headed for the garbage bag, I'm afraid.

Ice all gone so no need for scrapper. I have to admit I have used one once in the 6 yrs I have been here. Actually I used a credit card. Keep in mind going up to 70+ today and 80 next week. YEAH!!!

I still remember the bone-chilling cold of some Minneapolis winters. There seemed to be nine foot snow drifts one year I was there when the Perfect Storm blew through (1991?)

A credit card. There was three feet of snow or so on some cars in 1991 in Minnesota. Using a credit card on that probably would have turned you into a snowman with a credit card for a nose. :joke:

If I am feeling cold in FL some day, I just check the weather in Minneapolis for the same time.

It'll get warmer later, but I'm going out to buy a parka. Kath

Nanci, I'd say Spring for days, fall for nights. It gets real cold. I'm from Los Angeles, and I think its cold. Doesn't matter, I love it.

We played golf at 10:38AM and I thought it was going to be cool I had long pants and a long sleeve shirt on with a sweater vest. Vest was off before tee off. Wish I had worn a short sleeve shirt as the sun was very warming and comfortable there was little to no wind and not a cloud in the sky. We played Heron which is beside lake Miona so we thought it would be cool it wasn't it was great!

It is truly a beautiful day in The Villages.

I'm ignoring the frost report. A little denial can go a long way!

It is snowing up here in Maine today. Nothing staying on the ground, but enought to make me wish I was down at TV. Are you telling me that I cannot throw out my winter cloths and coats when I finally make the move?

It is a waste of space to keep winter clothes. Tonight we are suppose to have a low of 60 degrees. It gets cool here but never for long periods of time. Ice on car one day and 80 degrees the next.
