    Default This ^&*%$#@# weather!

    Spring will never get here. Temperatures of 40, 50 and nearing 60 degrees had snow melting like crazy. Creeks swelled, rivers reach flood levels and then we wake up to ZERO yesterday, 10 above this morning. Coming up on 11:00 o'clock and it's barely 12 degrees. Had it my was and Mother Nature would be facing the firing squad and me having the only live round....ain't no way I could miss with the muzzle on her forehead

    Well, I'll get a break next week. Leaving on the 5th for a week in Cozumel, Mexico. Scuba diving in 80 degree water. Temps are 85 during the day and 73 at night. Eat you hearts out.

    I never liked you Barry. lol Have a great time in Mexico! Was in Cozumel about 20 years ago and loved it. If you have a day to kill, and like old stuff, go see the ruins up by Playa Del Carmen. If memory serves me correctly, it's about an hour from Cozumel.

    E, actually Cozumel is an island about 7 miles off the coast of the Yucatan. It's directly east of Playa del Carmen and there is a ferry boat transiting from one to the other several times a day. This is not my first trip there. Since 2006 this will be my 7th time to Coz and I've been to or near Playa del Carmen 5 times. I like Coz better because it's not a tourist spot, but more of a diver's mecca with some of the best diving in the world and arguably the best in the Caribbean.

    Barry, I didn't remember having to take a ferry from Playa over to Cozumel. That was back in my younger drinking days. lol Was on a cruise in the Caribbean for a week. Funny, I remember how much the bar tab was for the trip, but I didn't remember taking the ferry over to Cozumel. lol Hope you have a great trip!
