My flight was going via Washington Dulles. That airport has, because of the fact of the president living there and air force one is stationed there, a heated landing strip. My plane could go and lift up in Washington to go to Orlando. Can you imagine my relieve. Now I always try to fly via Washington instead of NY or other stops because of that.

The following January, I convinced my entire family: siblings, their spouses, children, and my parents to go to Disney World. The week we were there was a record cold snap. We even had snow one day. The fountains that normally spray water were turned to ice. Lizards were falling out of the trees. And the leaves on the trees started to change colors. We were all FREEZING!!!

I packed the winter coat hat and gloves and REALLY needed them during the freezing temps. I am not sure but I think it may have been a record. It was interesting watching the news stories on how they project the oranges from freezing by spraying them with water so that ice will form on them. I am really hoping for better weather this year.
