Hmmm, there has to be a joke about a Redneck drinking beer and burning his boat up in there somewhere.

Aren't you a snowbird who forgot how to migrate in the spring?
Even after 50 years I still feel like a displaced southerner up here,but
you are cordially invited to be a Sunbird and come up for a couple of ScampCamps this summer. We'd love to have ya!
In the meantime... Hope to see you in February!

Floyd-
Florida hasn't been a southern state for several decades. We've got a few Michiganders and Mexicans too.
Actually, I'm a transplanted New Hampshirite who decided to be a full time snowbird. Some people like cold. I find heat uncomfortable, but cold painful. Mix in the white stuff and well, I was glad to apply for Florida citizenship.
I had reservations for HH but cancelled them after I sold my Scamp but plan to go down to Sebring to see everyone, perhaps on Wednesday. I do have a new trailer ordered but I won't have it by February.
And I really don't mind the snowbirds at all.

LOL. Well, I definitely have the image well set in my mind now.

The only good part of winter is I can drink a Hot Buttered Rum and not sweat

The good part of winter for us is we get to go south. I just replaced the battery and have serviced the water system. Won't be long now.

We got a light dusting of the white stuff here in Tulsa on Sunday. Last night it hit a record low temp for the date of 14 degrees (F). If you're thinking of moving south, better look farther south than here.

Talking A Dollar

For that guy who thinks a dollar is worth a dollar.
I recall when one couldn't carry $5 worth of groceries.
Now one can carry it in a pocket.
My first new car was $2200.
Our first house, on over an acre of land, was $14,900.

Love it when people reminisce about the "good ole days" yet fail to remember the minimum wage was @.85/hour. Comparing a 1950s/1960s dollar to today's dollar is like comparing an FGRV to a stickie, or an apple to an orange. :<)

Right now we're receiving some weather from the good old days, more like the 1970's when scientists were predicting that we were entering an ice age.

Turn south at the intersection . . .

Put the snow tires on yesterday. Must now remember to turn 'south' at the corner.

Please keep the discussion weather related. Should we have to clean up any more posts with political comments in them, this thread will be closed. Thanks.
