Driftwoodhunter: That really sucks. One of my jobs is a line cook for a resturaunt called Uno's, and we get hit hard all day..theres never a lull. So when a storm comes, and noone goes out to eat, im not needed..every time i hear theres a storm, im waiting for the phone call! Hope it wasnt busy! Maybe youll get to go home early!

Binbin; You said it! fishkeeping/aquatic gardening has broken my wallet. Again, and again. Thats why i love this forum..the plants, fish, even equipment are available from people who love the hobby like you, and at great prices! I cant even imagine how much money i wouldve spent just puying at stores!

Rant: The boyfriends interview was moved to tomorrow. *sigh*

Rave: Out of work, time for fish stuff! Catching fry..Oh boy! [[Ive already caught 135 of them...]]

LyzzaRyzz, what kind of fry are they? It's exciting to find, isn't it! Duh! never mind, I reread your first post - lol.

And yes, I left work after only two hours. I work at Walmart - we were getting slammed but I have a coworker that lives a mile from me and her brother was in a ditch, it got so bad. As I went home I passed him as the cops & tow truck were winching his trunk out. He's fine, thanks goodness. Within two hours we had 3" of freezing slush, and two inches of snow on top of it. That's when I left work. We may get as much as 12" tonight Woo-Hoo! (I'm off the next two days) I hope everyone else stays safe.

lol! How about I send you the 12" to 15" of snow we're suppose to have by tomorrow night??? Then 67 will seem warm by comparison and you can turn it into a rave

At 67 it will melt and I have water for my fish. Send it on down.

Laying sod is easy - it's prepping the soil first that's the hard part!

Rant: A high of 23 degrees today and it's only 10 at the moment. So many water buckets and tubs to smash and fill on the farm!

Not when it was a beautiful 80 just a day or 2 ago. Too cold. Had to wear a T-shirt, regular shirt and a jacket. C'mon this is FLA.
