I’ve been griping all day why I couldn’t get warm despite being bundled up and having a space heater in my office, and the thermostat on the furnace reading 73. (This is an old house. And remember, I’m in FLORIDA.)

Ah. So THAT'S why I'm freezing my ass off...

Ah, solves that mystery. I picked up the temp gun to check Sheldon’s digs (I swapped out his normal bulb for a 100w one to give him more warmth during this damn cold snap). I thought oh, let’s see what it is under my desk…


My desk is right in front of a window, and the house is wood-frame and has no insulation under the floor.


We’re supposed to get record cold tonight, down, hard freeze warnings, down into the 20’s. I’d JUST started feeling a little better, and then BAM, this cold front.

This is FLORIDA. We are NOT used to these kinds of temps. UGH.


I think me and Gidget will either be working from the couch, or from bed, for the rest of the night.

    Heh now add a negative and thats what we’re feeling up here in Michigan. Wind chills in the -20’s. I’ll gladly come for a visit and warm up!

      @Heather – Yeah, I couldn’t survive in those kinds of temps! LOL

        @Tymber Unfortunately I was born and raised here (except for two years when I lived in Miami) but there’s times when I hate it

    I’ve been lounging around all day in my cashmere yoga pants that are only practical for about 5 days of the year here in the TBA, moaning to the cats about how high the electric bill is going to be this month. Then I though about what a b*tch I am to be complaining when so much of the country is literally snowed in. Of course, about that time I realized our great weather, beaches & sunsets are just compensation for the fact that we live in a state when random craziness makes us the butt of national jokes on a more or less routine basis.

    OTOH, Siren Publishing just sent me an email link to a new Tymber Dalton Suncoast Society treat. Score!

      @Julaine – Yeah, I take consolation that a lot of our nuts are imported from elsewhere. LOL

    It’s not cold here. I’m in Arizona. I have been reading much more. Does Sami and Matt from Red Tide have a book? I thought I had read all of the Suncoast series but I don’t remember that one.

      @Marie – Yes, their book is Out of the Darkness, a prequel to the Coffeeshop Coven series.
