Doom and Gloom

I know I shouldn't complain about the weather this winter, as so much of the country has had it worse, with subzero temps and mountains of snow. 

But I think I'm entitled to a little grunting after I packed up the Solara, closed and arranged for monitoring of two places back home, and paid for a six month Florida rental in a place that was supposed to be in the 60's for the winter months, and 70's for fall and spring! Since November, a few weeks total of nice weather aside, it has averaged 50's (some days never getting above high 30's!) and my overall impression has been of gray or cloudy skies and rain.  Today, for example, while Mobile, Alabama gets snow and sleet (!!!) it is not expected to get above 37F here. 

Ok.  That's all you have to hear.  And to prove that I am trying to remain optimistic, here is a shot of the sunrise from yesterday (a day with some sun early on, but a high of only 47F).  And yes, this is the sunrise, not the sunset!
