Boynton Beach PD is hiring and its going to be 76 tomorrow 8)
Good point. The boardwalk isn't very long, but the eye-candy beats the hell out of what we see around these parts, even in Summer! 8)

Only problem is that there are too many old folks down there, they all drive and most shouldn't be on the road!

I'll be driving home from work tonight at 3am... (Quincy to Holbrook). Should be a good test to see how my new car holds up in the snow.
