    Jeff! Jeff! Jeff! You are just looking at it wrong. What a beautiful day! A dusting of snow to add a touch of sparkle and enough chill in the air to inspire any orchid to set spikes and initiate bloom!

    Ugly? you must be joking! In our hot , humid climate that just looks like a picture postcard. Now that winter is here can we see a winter thread like the 'Autumn Thread' we just had? Sorry about your heating bill though.

    I grew up in a cold place...Michigan....and it's funny because I find that people the grow up in the heat love the snow and those of us from the "great frozen north" love the tropical climates! lol We humans are a fickle bunch...
