I'm watching and waiting for the snow to melt. I'm really bored.

Lawnguy, I'm right down the road from you in palb Bay and it rained really heavy all morning. It just stopped about 2 o'clock. I have a brother that lives in Cocoa...off Clearlake :)

Hey Lawnguy,

Sure hope that the rain gets out of there before December 21.

The Douglas Family is heading your way to the BIG O. We are suckers for DWD. Going to be down there all week.

Have watching the weather for the past two weeks. Sure looks better than the last time we were there for Christmas. December of 2000 we about froze our butts off. I believe it is colder down in Flordia than it got here in KY.

Sure hope you can mow everyday we are down in your lovely state....

Rain here in NC today too :mad:

I can't complain too much though since it has been sooo dry. I've heard a few rumors today of more snow here for tomorrow. I'm kinda hoping it's only a rumor. Remains of the last snow are still hanging around on some of my accounts.

Thanks Lawnguy for the info.

The first of the week is looking good I hope the rest will be even better.

We are going to be coming back to the Port Orange area this coming summer. I already know what the weather will be then...HOT HOT HOT !!!

A real good friend of mine parent's own a home in Port Orange. We go down for the summer every other year. Hope to get with some of you guys down the area.

I have toyed with the idea of moving to the Port Orange area. Have even got a name for my lawn care biz. The Hillbilly Handyman lawn care service. My friend and I came up with the name while we were doing some fix ups to his parents house. We coming back from Lowes with the door and frame sticking out the back of his Grand AM. We had to laugh and you can imagine the looks we got going down the road.

Does anyone been to Narcoossee. I have a Uncle that owns a Bait shop/hardware/feed store. This place is one of a kind.

Again thanks for the info

I feel real sorry for you. What the temp going to be today? We have been up to our knees in snow, cold, and freezing rain. I even have to fight the dogs to get 'em to go out.

You southern boyz have all the luck.

Actually I was born and raised on Long Island, N.Y. and I kinda miss the snow and cold weather but right now I'm trying to build a business and the weather is not helping

From what I heard, parts of FL got hammered with rain. Some places got like 5" I think. Dang!

Well, we got lucky. The weather missed us this time. It was sunny, cool and pretty windy all day. I was able to get some work done today! :p

I'm out of Orlando now ... man .. yeah .. that was a TON of rain the past couple of days!!! Everything is squishy .. and now it's freezing out!!!!! (well, not literally .. but .. you know.)

I was in the Orlando area this last week near Apopka, didnt Melbourne get 5 inches with that storm? It was a 24 hour rain...now another, the mosquitos will be hungry.

I'll take a crappy December day in Florida over a nice December day in Minnesota anytime.

Much better weather today no rain 60's overcast perfect working weather. I had to laugh I saw a couple other LCO's out there, they were all bundled up with three layers of clothing. I guess if I live here long enough I'll be like that too. fifteen years so far and I still feel comfortable in 60 degree weather.
