No icicles here in Pure Florida yesterday, but my sweet sister-n-law did call me excitedly to announce that snowflakes were falling at her house.
They didn't last long, but were clearly visible on my big brother's black Ford pickup truck.
I did not doubt her for a second, because, at the time, I was only a few miles away at my folk's home and it was grey, windy, and FREEZING!
We were handed some much needed rain the night before as the front moved through and in typical Florida fashion, one day of grey mess dissolved into cold, clear, crystal blue skies.
Today is spectacular.
Christmas, both here at PFHQ and at Mom and Dad's, was very, very nice.
Lots of cheer and togetherness.
Mom and Dad gave me an ANNUAL PASS to Florida's state park system, or should I say, they gave US a PASS?
Y'all know that PASS will translate into beaucoup posts here at PF.
Florida's park entrance fees have risen lately, and while still reasonable ... if you go as much as I try to do ... for instance, dashing into Manatee Springs State Park (local for me) on a whim to check for sea cows, ... well the cost adds up.
The pass really is nice when I am just out wandering in the JEEP or cruising upon Raptor Red, because I can just whip in to any park that catches my fancy. In a park dense area, that can wind up costing big bucks ... but, not for me in 2011!
There will be posts.
