Here in Fort Lauderdale? A very pleasant, and yep very very sunny, 64 degrees and climbing. Should hit around 67 or so on Wednesday as I write this blog, with the next few days reaching into the 70s. Nice stuff.
I even noticed a network news report that showed jet planes sitting on our airport runway at FLL, waiting for conditions to change so they could fly empty to other airports in the northeast. Nasty stuff up there, and not nice at all. Which brings me, finally, back to where I started. The beach. See, we have a thing on this website called the beach cam. Actually, we have a bunch of them. You could, for instance, take in a live view from Fort Lauderdale's Beach Place. Or watch the white breakers roll to shore along the Hollywood Broadwalk, as I did on my computer screen a moment ago. Very nice, and not nasty at all. Different indeed from the frigid weather you have up there in northernland. In Pompano Beach, I see that there's a woman and two kids playing in the ocean at this moment, an older couple walking in the water up to their ankles and a bunch of folks spread out on blankets along the beach. The sunny, warm beach. Ok, so you get the idea. To pick your fave live beach scene, all sunny and warm, check these out: http://www.sunny.org/webcam. Listen, I'm not being smug about this or anything, believe me. I'm an ex-northerner myself who lived in very cold and very snowy Vermont for 14 years. I know winter. I just wish I'd had a live beach cam to bring me to the subtropics back when I endured those long winters. It's a good break for the mind, no question. If your body can't be in Florida, at least your head can be. And maybe on a cold snowy January day, just after a big storm, a sunny warm beach for the mind will offer exactly what you need.
