I cannot stand this colder weather even though I swore to myself I would try and not gripe about it this year. All I know is that when I ran out my front door in my pj's to get the paper yesterday morning, I ran faster than I had since my school days lol. In fact, I convinced myself that I might as well go back to bed since it was Sunday and I had no plans. No such luck this morning. I am at work, in a massive turtle neck sweater with the heater on and still freezing. I am such a wimp.

The weather has been really invigorating, but I can feel the cold front moving on today and am looking forward to it.

Last week my wife kept saying she loved the tropical climate, but wished we could have some cool, dry nights like Denver in the summertime. Then we get a cold front that feels like Denver weather and she says she's too cold.

Sorry, but this cool front makes me pretty happy since I am a lucky person who gets to be out in it during the day at work. I am pretty sick of that hot, humid, crap we have been blessed with for the last 6-7 months. this is great!!! Sorry whimpy people.......

I have to be outside with the kids for PE and recess (Noon in basketball court with no shade), although they had indoor for both last week because of the record heat. Just the "usual" highs 80s makes me want to faint.

I had off today and spent all day, and yesterday, outside thorough enjoying the nice cool Fall like air. The AC is off, windows and doors open, and a very nice cool breeze coming in. Fresh cool air is so much better than the artifical version.

I sat outside yesterday and this morning (7 AM) in my pj's (short sleeves and capris). I think it was 58 this morning when I got up. I know Tampa, and places farther up north were colder, but this was not cold for me. I am finding that the longer I am in Florida, the better I am able to tolerate COLD. It's the heat that bothers me more and more each year. That may be the opposite of what the majority of Florida residents say, but I suppose I am different. I didn't come here anywhere to escape the cold in the north.

Sorry, it is so short lived. Back to the 80s again later in week. Wonderful.

You and I are so much on the same page, everything you feel about the weather down here I second. The last two days were AMAZING, you couldn't keep me inside, now unfortunately I've got the A/C back on = (. I just love that crisp weather and sincerely hope we get a colder winter this year. I just wish that when the temps drop and we get a cold snap, that the temps would stay low, not necessarily 50s, but mid-60s would be great. I just HATE how it's back to 80s again.

Yup, I don't think ppl up North realize just how much time we spend stuck inside. You always hear ppl up North complaining about how they can't leave the house during the winter, but it's just like that for us too except we are stuck inside during the 8 month Summer. I just hope we don't have to wait long before the next cold front, I loves me some 50-60 temps!

Yeah, I am with you guys. here we go with the humid CRAP by the end of the week. We always get a few days of great weather followed by the revenge of 90 degree nasty Florida heat. I wish it would snap for good... Sick of the miserable heat. The last few days have been unbelievably wicked awesome!!!!
