Holy cold front, bro!
It was mad frigid this week. Like, 50-degrees. WTF, Mother Nature? C'mon, we live in Miami, not Antarctica.
So glad it's getting back to normal, socks and sandals-type weather. It couldn't happen at a better time.
As y'all know, it's President's Day Weekend. And even though most of us work on Monday, there's no reason to sit at home and watch the History Channel.
