DC,

Please tell me that you are cold in Southern California and not cold in San Pedro because I am coming back next week to get warm. Now being cold in San Pedro is better than being cold here, but still I am looking forward to 80+ degree weather.

long pants this morning - great sleeping weather - if you are out of the strong north breeze the sun is clear and will likely be hot.
my prediction for today - locals in hoodies, tourists in bikinis

Thank goodness January is finally here! We need an occasional cold spell to help us appreciate the hot spells.
Very strange to be shivering at 78 degrees - but that's how it is. I reminded my workmen the other day, when we had sprinkles on and off all day, that this was much nicer than working in the very hot sun!
I have one long-sleeved T for just such weather. This along with shorts and bare feet is still wonderful.

With the lower temperature I am hoping that we get even more ( it is very good already) productivity from the guys building our new home!

Looking at -30 Wind Chills tomorrow in the great white north. Thankfully will be enjoying San Pedro's version of cold in less than a month.

Looks like the Temps are rising in ole San Pedro.

Funny how a person's perspective changes even about something as basic as tolerance to weather. How long does it take a northern expat to get so accustomed to that kind of climate? I'm in the same boat as Otter, John and the Lady, and Iknow whatever is going on there will feel gooooood after being in the midwest deep freeze the last few weeks. Hope to see some of you at the chicken drop a week from Thursday.

I'm up North (near Boston) for the first time in the winter in two years because of a health problems and man I'm I cold. Predictions are of temps as low as 4 degrees for the next 3 days. I barely go outside as it is. It is so bad, I'm seriously thinking of going down to Florida and being treated there.

Hope to be out of this crap and back in San Pedro in a few weeks. 60 - 70 degrees looks awful good to me right now. wink Oh how I wish I was back. smile

Come on down Jim, I'll buy you a drink, or two, or three.....

Oh yeah...the trout are in the harbor and the snook are tearin up lures not far from your place.

Re: Ok...Im cold !! - 01/23/13 03:50 AM

I think I'm going down to join you. Few problems though. I'm drinking tea these days and can only walk a short distance. My place in Florida is rented for the winter so I can't even stay there. This winter has been nothing but screw Jim and keep him cold. wink

Best bet is to return to San Pedro ASAP. Even if I can only sit in a chair, soak up a little sun, blog and look out at the reef. smile

I'll send you a PM. GBS or Guillain–Barré syndrome
Posted By: ScubaLdy

Re: Ok...Im cold !! - 01/23/13 05:41 PM

Hey Jim
I sure have missed you driving by. I googled GBS and hope you have had the best of medical care. If you have to sit why not sit here? We could all sit up in my unfinished house here at Birdland and watch the beach and reef from one set of windows and the lagoon and mangroves from the other side.

Re: Ok...Im cold !! - 01/24/13 08:21 PM

Jim, I have recurring bouts with transverse myelitis that they occassionally think may be Guillain–Barré. Pissing me off and they can't do anything about it so I feel for ya man.

My mother suffered from G-B for quite some time. Do not wish that on anyone.....get well!

Re: Ok...Im cold !! - 01/25/13 12:32 AM

Thank you all for the well wishes. Harriette I have to wait here or at least somewhere in the USA until we are reasonably certain I won't have a serious relapse. The day I flew out by the time I got to Boston I could not walk so if I would have stayed a few more hours I might have required a med flight.

Would a doctor recognize the disease, it is kind of rare, I had never heard of it. It took a Neurologist at Mass Gen. Hospital and they were not reasonably sure until they did a spinal tap. The treatment for me may or may not be available in Belize if it kicked in full scale again. There is no cure, it cures itself or it doesn't. Usually it does, but no one knows how long it will take. 3 months - 6 months - longer ?

I’m looking forward to the warmth of the climate, my friends and the country of Belize but it will take a few more weeks before I dare. I will have to suffer in this god forsaken cold a little longer. It SUCKS!

Now if anyone reading this post could inform me if any of the Hospitals in Belize have a neurology department that would help with our decision. I will be making some inquiries soon myself. Again thank you all and I certainly miss the Island and everyone.
