So here I sit in my cosy home, with temperatures set to drop to -9C overnight, we have half melted snow on the ground, ice on the pavements and icicles hanging off my garden shed!

Just before Christmas we had friends who were visiting WDW prior to enjoying a Disney Cruise; the morning they set off for Port Canaveral they were greeted with a car windscreen covered in frost, something they'd expect to see in England in December but the last thing they were expecting to see in 'sunny Florida'!
Back in 2008 we were lucky enough to spend 3 weeks in WDW, but towards the middle part of our stay we began to hear warnings about a tropical storm...the result being a lot of wet days! But as Brits we are always prepared...we even bring along our own rain coats (no poncho's for us)...and being British we weren't going to let a bit of rain spoil our fun!
Now I have to confess that I love the thunder storms in Florida, the short heavy downpours with amazing lightening displays, and they are as much a part of the vacation as everything else. But in 2008 the rain came down for hours at a time and one of my most lasting memories is of being at Epcot one late afternoon.
The rain had been off and on all day and it had gotten to late afternoon and we decided to take a little visit to Mexico....tacos and margaritas. So there we were at the Cantina De San Angel when the rain started again, but we were fine enjoying our Mexican feast under the umbrellas...but as the rain came down we thought we better put our rain coats on, but we stayed and kept eating.

We then finished off the day at The Liberty Inn with a helping of apple cobbler - perfect!
