The Weather and A Trip To Daytona Beach

DeBary, FL.

50 deg. clear, NW wind @ 5 mph.

Forecast =  Today: Partly cloudy with isolated showers. Highs around 66°F. West northwest wind 7 to 25 MPH, gusting to 36 MPH. Chance of precipitation near 20%.

Tonight: Mostly clear with isolated showers. Lows around 36°F. Wind chill around 26°F. West northwest wind 13 to 20 MPH, gusting to 28 MPH. Chance of precipitation near 20%.

You may notice that the weather forecast above includes the weather for tonight. The reason for that, is that today the temperatures down here in Florida are supposed to drop like a rock!!! Plus, the winds are going to  pick up a lot!!! If the forecasters on TV are correct, the temperature will get all the way down into the 20's tonight, but I really doubt it as long as the wind blows like they're forecasting.

In any case, it's going to feel really cold tonight. Something we really haven't had much of all winter.

Oh, and by the way, tomorrow's highs are only supposed to get up into the mid 50's, with 15 to 20 mph winds!!!!


Friday, Jim and Linda took a few more boxes of "stuff" out of the inside of me to the house. While they were there, they hung a few more curtains in the bathrooms. They also stopped at the manager's office and filled out another paper. Nancy also gave them little credit card like things that they'll need to operate the gate at the entrance of the community. So far, they haven't needed the card because there was a problem with the gate, but now the gate is being repaired and if they go over there in the evening, they'll need the card to get in.

Yesterday, CLT took  Jim and Linda over to Daytona Beach where they went to some furniture stores to look for a new bed for the house. Since Linda was a girl, she has always wanted a "poster" bed and she's been thinking that this will probably be the last chance she'll ever have to own one. So,  ,   ,  ,  ,  they searched the stores over there and she finally found one that she likes.

I saw a picture of it in a brochure that they brought back with them, and it the post on the headboard and footboard are quite thin and very tall. In fact, I'm thinking that those posts will go almost all the way up to the ceiling in that double wide. 

Of course there had to be a little "glitch" in all of this. You see, this bed has to be ordered and will not be available for delivery until the 15th of March!!! As you know, we'll be leaving here on the 7th, so this causes a problem. Well, Jim and Linda thought about it for awhile and finally decided that by the end of the month, one way or another, they'd get back here to accept the delivery, or possibly Laura or Lindsey could come and let the delivery men into the house.

So, the delivery date was set for the 29 of March, and one way or another, someone will be there.

Today, I think Linda wants to go over to the house and get started on making those bedroom curtains, so they'll probably spend quite a bit of time over there. While she's making the curtains, Jim will probably be unpacking some of the boxes of "stuff" that they've taken over there.

Did you know that In 1968, congress (Legislation # 15951) passed a bill that changed several federal holidays, in order for them to fall on a Monday, thus creating a 3-day weekend? The act took affect 3 years later in 1971.
