Vancouver has been -5c and as a high and icy for a week, though warmed up to +5 the last couple of days. Fortunately I was able to escape and came to Ft Lauderdale (FL) a couple of days ago, where its a comfortable 80F. It's amazing how much one can do by phone and email. The beach and inviting ocean is 2 blocks away.
I didn't know that. Small world!! Please say hi to him for me.
