Great update! I bet you'll be the champ of shuffleboard before you leave!

I hate the heat, but this year the cold got to me too. Dry heat IS still hot, you are right, but Atlanta humidity jacks it up to unbearable. Enjoying the spring! You too!


Hi Joanne,

I visited your state, CO, this year for the first time. We stayed a night in Denver (loved the Cherry Creek mall!!) and met friends for dinner who just moved to Longmont. We had breakfast in Denver at a tiny place called Sunrise Sunset that was amazing!! We then went to the mountains to ski. Being from FL, I loved your snow and the scenery was amazing. But, to live in it every day would be hard.

I've experienced desert heat and it is much worse than FL heat. Like an oven! FL rarely gets over 93 degrees.

It's nice you get a chance to get away from the cold. Enjoy your time there!
