    well sometime this week we will be heading to florida for the winter. plan was to leave today driving down . thing are bit of a waiting game .I'm waiting for fed-x to deliver my new laptop. this is do to arrive Tuesday . there also a second Delay as were now waiting for a title on a 2nd/3rd car. I'm getting my daughters Chrysler Sebring Convertible and she sending me the title. I have to title it and plate it here In Michigan. only other choice was to get a Florida license and then insure it there . this would run a bunch more money in the long run. even do where keeping the car in florida. anyway were not getting internet installed at the new house at his time. will just use free wifi when we can. it's avail. in are complex just not in are unit :( we do get free cable tv do. just a heads up all.

    get news Les . sitting at my daughters house today waiting on a plumber to repair a leak. had to have a leak detector guy come out to find it. $250 and 20 mins later. I between the studs in the ceiling where the wall meets :( . so now she has a hole in her ceiling and 2 holes in the garage wall. also she has a hole in her living room wall where the plumber first tried locate the leak. will be calling her insurance agent after the leak fix by the first plumber who is returns today to fix it. id do the repairs but it also screwed up here living room floor and it will need to be pulled and replaced . :( im not a florida license plumber or contractor .so were not going to risk the a claim being rejected.

    Coldest we hit in Cleveland area was -15 F, wind chill -30 F. This polar vortex or whatever they are calling it can end
    just about anytime now.

    update -plumbers bill was $645.00 to repair the leak . plus the $250 for the leak detector guy . now she has to get the wall's and ceiling patched , painted. good part of all this for me is it's her finding a contractor . no 3 to 5 day's of me working for free ( meal ) and a thank you dad .

    Yes we have been hit hard in Niagara as well...Being between the lakes doesn't help. We typically get days from -27 to 18degC, depending on which way the wind is blowing
