    There you go again with that Global Warming thing.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See!

      Right now it is the coldest so far this winter here. It is 3°F (-16°C).
      Just this past Monday it broke 50°F which was a repeat of Sunday when it topped 50.

      This coming weekend we are forcast to break 50 again.

        Thanks for asking Vince as we are in the middle a real winter storm right now. It's 49 F outside tonight and I had to plan my trip out to my spa between weather fronts. Even at that my hair got a little wet before I was ready to get out and run back into the warmth of the house. They are predicting we may get as much as an 1" of rain over the next 4-days or so before this deluge finally moves on.

          It would take alot for me to be able to function in Vince's weather world.

          Vince, last year I roughed in some houses here one week when it was between 95 to 100 degrees with 95% humidity.

          Have you ever been anywhere like that working or visiting? How were your tolerances?

            I've been in -40 F and it was not much fun. It wasn't so much that I was cold it was that I felt like an Umpa Lumpa with all of the layers I had on.

              It's been about 16 degrees here the past couple of mornings. I'm a wuss in cold. I have enough layers on you couldn't shoot me with a bullet.

                  Coldest day in Fort Lauderdale in six years it was 35 here last night. I dont know how people deal with this weather for 6 months. I would not leave my house thank god my parents moved here before I was born.

                    With the wind chill yesterday morning it was around -3F. We were colder than you, Vince!! My heating bill is going to be hard to pay this month, I think. This weekend we're supposed to be up near 60F though. I think I might do a little sun-bathing!!!
                    I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
