I had a sense.  It pays to know your audience.

If it ever gets cold enough here Harry, I have a couple candidates in mind.

Dave, I'm really sorry that I couldn't fulfill your request yesterday, but I get the sense that you might have better luck trying it with one of your local dare devils. Just a sense.....

Dry for now but it is supposed to rain for the coming week. Even saw a 50 on the forecast for the week!

Comment by Harry Warner on January 4, 2018 at 12:02pm

We are currently at 24° with single digits forecast for later today.  We presently have whiteout conditions, winds gusting 40-50 mph.  I ain't complainin'.  Just putting things in perspective.  I wouldn't trade it fer nuthin!  Life is good!!

Frank, I am further south than you are and it must have been 40 degrees F this morning.  As of this writing 49 degrees at 10:50 A.M.

You are right Dave there goes the price of orange juice.  for the last 3 or so years we have not seen quality citrus fruit.  I think they are shipping it all to china
