    The better one is the nude dance at dawn wearing a beanie sprinkled with fairy dust.

    Pictures please!! LOL

    Actually, all of South Florida has been in drought conditions for several years, and it's serious. Rainy season should probably have started by now, but it's been bone dry here in SE Florida. Hopefully, we'll start to see some rain soon.......we need it desperately.

    I am not a morning person, LOL. I reserve that one for east coast beach sunrises.

    When I was in Fl last, 2 years back, the glades were very dry

    we've experienced this down here in Oz for a few years, to the point where we had sever water restrictions... some places still have them... it's not a nice thing to go through...

    so, Fingers crossed for rains soon...

    oh and they do come... eventually.

    Keep your fingers crossed. According to CNN this morning, there's a cold front about to start dropping down, bringing much needed rain to the entire state. The only problem is that rain will also contain lightening, which might start more fires (there are several burning as we speak).

    So, please keep doing that rain dance. We need the water desperately down here. And thank you, from a grateful and very dry state.

    Actually, we'd probably get arrested. LOL

    You'd think our local Seminole Indians would at least be out there rain dancing.
