Tonight I performed my final job for the season in Marathon Key, Florida. Had a huge crowd, probably more than 100 ppl at one point, most of them stayed around long after happy hour, which made the waitstaff and bar tenders very, very happy. When I announced that I was headed north and wouldn't be back till November, there were several ladies that came up and gave me hugs and kisses (Carol was only a few feet away.), the tip jar filled up pretty good, and they wanted me to play longer, but there is an ordinance here that carries a hefty fine for playing after a certain time of night. And, yes, they do enforce it with their two man police force.

Bright and early Wednesday morning, I'll be headed north and with luck should arrive in the frozen wilds of Maryland late Thursday night or mid day Friday. I can vividly recall when I made this trip straight through, but I was very young then. As soon as the van is unloaded, I have to fix a burst pipe in my heating system, then go through tons of mail, pay some bills, the usual stuff, then do the taxes. UGH!

Cheers,

Gary cool

The worse part of Florida for Northeasters is the trip to and fro, especially travelling boring 1-95 that seems to never end. That's why we choose 81 to 77 a very scenic more interesting route.
Have a safe trip home Gary. Next year we'll try and visit ya in the Sunshine State as 2016 will be our 3rd year, making my wife and I official snowbirds. smile

When I arrived home late last night, the temperature was a brisk 34 degrees, right now it's snowing hard, and the plumber just left after repairing a couple burst segments of my hotwater baseboard heating system. Worst winter in 60 years and it's still lingering. Right now, the temperature is 35 degrees, there is about 3 inches of snow on the ground and some mixed freezing rain. Last night, all we had for heat was my auxiliary electric heat system, which doesn't put out enough heat to warm the house, and our electric blankets. Damned, snow on first day of spring!

I'll be a happy camper if I'm able to sail back to the Florida Keys in October and get the Hell away from another nasty, Maryland winter. Winter in the keys is far easier to cope with, I get to play music and sing to the ladies, and any temperature lower than 75 during the day is winter down there. wink

Cheers,

Gary cool

We've had over 100 cm of "global warming" (that's over 39 inches or well over 3 ft) over the past two days...as you say, Gary, it's the worst winter we've had in years here on the island. Some of the apartments on the main floor of my building have snow covering their living room windows nearly to the top...still waiting for Housing to get a front end loader to clear it away...luckily I'm on the 2nd (top) floor.

One thing about winter is that it lets me devote more time to music and video racing games, and luckily the former has always been a passionate hobby as well as my method of livelihood.

I suppose it is nice to be in warmer climates, but it has never been any kind of priority for me...probably a good thing.

I am glad for you that you are able to get away as you do.

Ian

Thanks Ian. The older I get the colder I get, and last night with no heat in the house really brought that to life. I could NOT live where you are - just too cold for this old codger.
