Default Looks Like I Picked the Wrong Week to Come Back from Florida

I had a nice vacation in the Florida Sun last week. Temps were always between 70 & 80. Now I'm back in New Jersey where the temperature is 5 degrees F(-15 C for y'all north of the boarder) and falling. Heck, it'* probably warmer in "Frostbite Falls", MN!!! But I guess it'* better than what some of you went thru in the Northwest this past week.

Kind of chilly here in NorthWest Washington. Didn't last all that long, we were lucky.

Will...Just got hammered in Oregon. Can be a real bitch in the Willamette Valley sometimes.
