MC-8 in SW Florida, where we have a wind chill advisory for tonight, low in the mid 20's and below freezing for more than 4 hours (that bad for the citrus).  This has been the coldest winter we have experinced in Florida since we moved here back in '76, but it is supposed to warm back up by Friday.  Jack

'82 MC 9 Near Roanoke, VA  My location is posted in my profile.  If I may whine just one more time regarding this, I do wish everybody would at least post their home state or region in their profile,  so we could know when we're nearby.  (Unless of course, you're a full-timer)

BJ,

Yes, Port Arthur has gone way down, Bridge City was swept away with IKE 10 ft of water. 10,000 homes destroyed, it left very few standing. IKE also swept though down town Orange 4 to 5 ft. People are rebuilding,
12 years ago arriving back from a 2 year stint in Indonesia we settel ed in Orange, it has been the most friendliest place we have ever lived, today it was 70 degrees.

Jack,

Thank you very much for your invitation we are looking in March/April to start to travel a lot. We are also putting hook ups, so when we get rid of a few of the 4104,s we will have room and be able to return the favor.
