    Thanks, I love it here and it's just a little added bonus. I always got depressed when it got dark early and the cold added to that. So now I am loving it. I am 3.5 miles from the beach and today I drove out to Fort Lauderdale Beach on A1A. It was beautiful out and I did not even need the AC, the windows down was fine.

    I'm about 2/3 between NJ and FL, and my sunset is at 5:12. I get a little of New Jersey waether and a little Florida at times too - yesterday it was 70+ degrees, but today the high is only 50.

    This calculator tells you when your sun sets and rises throughout the USA (Form A), and the world (Form B).

    Mem, I figured you'd like it in Florida.

    When we have a "cold snap" is when I wish I was still in So. Fla. Tomorrow morning's forecast for Daytona is low 40s! The Gulf Stream down there keeps it 8-12 degrees warmer.

    Yesterday it was about 85 here. Today is great and only about 67. Finally I don't have to turn the AC on in the house or the car.

    never will get used to sensibilities like this

    over fifty-five Fahrenheit is too warm for me to be really comfortable

    just amazing to me
