    Oh I know, but we'll go from the 30's to the 80's in a couple of days...!

    Florida: where you can get frostbite and sunburn in the same week!

    I hate winter so bad, and I'm a native Floridian. I don't know how you people even survive in any other state during the cold months. I'm happiest when it's 95...temp and humidity!

    I am just the opposite. While I don't like the frigid temps we have now, I would rather have it be 60 and dry than 95 and HUMID.....

    When it's cold I can always wear warmer cloths. When it's hot and I take off more clothes people tend to look around for a cop.

    Man, -20 here over night the past few nights. I've just been driving the TDI and left the MS plugged in so it could keep the battery from frosting itself silly.
