I can't see the snow from my place. Then again...it's hard to see 1,269 miles away in Florida. The weather here is so boring. Yeah..it's always the same "sunshine, 75-85 degrees day after day after day after day after..." Get the idea? Boring!

ROFLMAO.....that's what we said from AZ several years ago and came home. It hasn't snowed a lot since.

I lived in FL for 12 years & when we started talking about moving back, I remember telling my husband how tired of Palm trees I was. They never change, always the same, etc. Moved back to be with family again & I'm thankful for that. BUT I absolutely hate this weather! I had to brush the snow off my truck today! It's pretty to look at but I hate driving in it. I hate dressing for the cold. Where are my tanks & flip flops?! Couldn't tell ya lol! Be thankful you're there...we'll be coming back to retire FOR SURE! ;-)

Where at in FL are you? We lived 5 mins from the Gulf. I miss the hot, humid, salty air!

Yeah, I am in Florida for the winter just north of Fort Lauderdale. Today was 82 degrees and sunny. Looked several times today at the live webcams from Cedar Point and saw the snow. Looks like a good 4 inches or more.

Keep warm and safe on the roadways fellow Ohioans. Course that may apply more for us here in Florida. There are so many snow birds down here the roads are packed. It can be like rush hour anytime of the day. So many cars are here with northern states license plates. Although, from my calculation it seems most are from Canada with Ontario winning out. I do believe half the population of senior citizens from Canada are here in Florida.

BabyMomma

Because Canada sucks.

The snow is really pretty, but I'd like it a whole lot better if so many people didn't forget how to drive in it over the summer! I didn't have a choice but to go out this morning, and I saw cars slipping and sliding all over the place and heard about several accidents. Despite having just an ordinary car (not big and heavy, no four wheel or front wheel drive), I didn't have any problems. Know why not? Because I didn't drive like it was 70 degrees with dry pavement!

I did see some other cautious drivers out and about, but I also saw far too many who didn't take visibility, road conditions, or anything else into account. THEY'RE the threats on the road, not the snow!

On the other hand, now that I'm done running around for the rest of the weekend, the snow IS pretty!
