I wear socks with my flipflops when it gets really chili (below 70). When it gets down to 60 I put on a barn jacket when I get out of the house in the morning ;)

I agree with all of those. LOL

If I could add


When it snows, most of the accidents are from people not from here. We KNOW the roads are not going to be salted so we stay home.

When we lived in Charleston our favorite tradition was to go to the beach the day after Christmas to feed the birds :banana02:
