Default Does it snow in Florida?

Slept in late this morning... just relaxing, and destressing. Then headed out to drive around, and enjoy some of the day in Ft Lauderdale.

Couldn't believe all the SUVs I saw running around!! They must be expecting snow here!

Just this moment, from the hotel balcony. watched the Golden Princess pull away from her berth and sail out. Heading out for dinner shortly to meet some Florida friends. It's a good life! <VBG>

I don't know about Florida Kuki, but it sure snows here! You're lucky you got out of Montreal last night, because today you probably would've been grounded due to the blowing snowstorm, ice, and poor visibility. Lucky you, off to Florida, and off to a CRUISE!

There were some flurries in Tallahassee in January 1979 and some sleet in Orlando Christmas of 1989....my son's first Christmas....we had rolling blackouts to conserve power.
Hope that never happens again.

There were flurries in Daytona Beach last winter.

Kuki, It snowed in West Palm Beach in Jan. 1977, I know because that is when we moved down here from Michigan. Hope you and mrs. Kuki sleep well tonight and have a great time this coming week, I know we will.

Hey Moose Man,
Bon Voyage, hope you are enjoying dinner out this evening. I'm sure the weather there is much nicer than back at home.

Enjoy!

If there is even snow or ice in the forecast in Florida, or most southern states, people panic and swamp the grocery stores. They clean out the supply of bread, milk and bottled water like they are going to be stuck in their houses for weeks without being able to get out.

We lived in Atlanta for a little over a year and it did snow one day. The schools closed at noon the day before it snowed and people just went crazy preparing for a dusting that fell after midnight and was gone by noon.

It snowed up in the panhandle in 1989... I remember I was even able to build a pathetic little snowman!

A lot of the kids I knew had never seen snow before, but I had spent several of my formative years in Upper Michigan so to me it was no big deal.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

If I ever see snow here, I'm calling my TA, driving to the port of Miami and getting on the next ship.

I crack up when I see Hummers on the Florida Turnpike. Man...those things are scary. What a joke...a hummer in South Florida. They wouldn't know what to do in a snowstorm. Give me a convertible sports car any day.

Six more days to my 10-night Ultimate Southern Caribbean cruise on the Summit.

Happy cruising.
