Supposed to get up to 80* on our long weekend coming up. If the weather folks got it right (which is always iffy), then we're heading up the river for a cookout on the sand bar. Sorry about all of the cold weather you guys are seeing up north. Chilly today. It started out at 33* and getting up to 65* this afternoon.... BRRRRR!     :D

No boat, but I plan on breaking the Solstice out on Sunday! 60+ degrees. I've had it out at 30 degrees but not as enjoyable...:blink:

I've driven the dunebuggy on 30 degree days. You just have to bundle up like you are snowmobiling.

Our low day time temperature for the next week will be 65 with a few days in the 70's. It's been a super winter so far! Unreal! Some trees have already flowered and the pollen count is up. Haha! Who worries about the pollen count in February?!?

Ha! What I meant was........I never had to worry about or deal with pollen this time of year. For Gods sake it's February. Itchy eyes runny nose. Everything's supposed to be frozen or at least cold! I have neighbors cutting grass..........

We had two days in the 60's with sun this weekend. I sat out on the deck and soaked up the sun. We now have some areas of open water so hopefully the rest of the ice is off today or tomorrow. Wednesday is supposed to be 66 and sun.
