45 to 50 degrees... grew up in chicago... hell boy, the water I swam in 
during spring break was colder than that!!
In florida now, jacksonville....  yah that would be a 'cooler' day, but 
one HAS to admit,  git the big fluffy comforter and curl up underneath 
it with the window cracked open so the crisp air can come in and that is 
perfect sleeping temperature.
parents are in south florida and anything under 70 they are whining and 
putting on sweaters... not sure if it's the 'age' thing, or the 
'florida' thing there but well, gotta love em anyways :)
make sure your roast times are a bit longer to compensate fer the nice 
temps... I find that with the I roast when I roast when the house (ok 
dumpy apartment) has been chilled, it drags out longer.
Merry hanakuah and happy christmas and all that stuffs.

I used to scoff at my mom throwing on a sweater whenever it got below  
70 (heck, she used to schlep one with her whenever she'd go someplace  
where they cranked the A/C). Then one early Feb. day we flew down  
there--and the temp got down to 29F overnight. Woke up having to  
scrape frost off the windshield. The restaurants' vestibules and bars  
were packed, because nobody wanted to wait outside, not even under  
the radiant heaters.  People looked longingly at my fur-trimmed  
leather parka and gloves....knew there was a reason I'd forgotten to  
zip out the liner!  (Mom even took the mink out of storage that week).

wow sandy I am truly impressed...  seriously...
according to my parents,  there must be some kind of magical umbrella 
over cape coral.
they never get rain
they never get wind.
its always sunny and dry there
the state can be in a Level 3 flood warning, but it somehow misses them...
somehow I believe that if a 50 foot tsunami were to hit florida, for 
some unexplained reason, it'd part and miss cape coral...
yet, me being the 'evil son' that I am, every time I go down there to 
visit,  the bad weather follows... yep you got it..  frost,   rain.... 
you name it.... Wow... this is the first time in MONTHS!! its rained 
here... I can't understand it!!!!    This is the coldest it's EVER been 
here in the last (fill in the blank) years....
I just say, yanno mom, it's a darned good thing then that I brought 
fresh coffee to keep us warm.
For the record I have a THICK lined leather jacket that I got in Italy,  
nice snuggy and warm, I wear it down there this time of year..
Florida doesn't get cold... yeah  my (_*_) it don't.   60 is nice... 6 
isnt...  jacksonville already had it's cold spell this year, lets hope 
it dont happen again.... my saffron don't like that much cold too much.

Cape Coral, huh?  Years ago, my aunt & uncle very nearly bought  
property there (they lived in Miami Beach, off Arthur Godfrey Rd.-- 
years later my mom moved from Brooklyn to Delray Beach);  they  
decided not to because they were skeptical that it'd ever be  
developed. Guess they were wrong!
