I'm from Manchester N.H. and we are thankful that we can leave from Manchester cause it is fast and no big traffic areas. Every time we go somewhere in the winter we have a big storm! Makes us thankful to get away!

13 days and not even thinking about packing. I guess when you've been going for 8 years and you live in Florida you have the stuff in your closet. Went to the packing website. I NEVER bring sundresses or long slacks and DH MAY bring long slacks, but probably not. Capris and shorts for me and shorts and golf shirt for him. You can sit outside at LeDome in shorts and we don't do Chez Mathilde after a bad experience so..... Linda

jckrbtac, how long does it take you to fly to Aruba?
Hate to tell everyone this, but it was 70 degrees here today and tommorrow, when Im playing golf, it will be 75.
We are having a very unusual winter here.

Also, what dates will you be there and where are you staying. We will be there 04/01 to 04/12 and 2 other couples on the board will be also. Maybe more.
