I do like the snow. I just don't want to live in it every day in the winter. Prior to this I had seen a couple alligators in Louisiana. This was my first visit to "the swamp". The terrain was new to me although I sort of knew what to expect. There were gators all over the place if you just looked a little. I had a full day to cruise around and dropped by one of the Everglades visitor centers (near Miami).... it was like 3:00 PM and they wanted $30 to enter. I passed. At that late point in the day, all I wanted to do was go to the visitor center. Call it part of my general recon for future trips. That said, you know, unless you are in a boat, I don't think the Everglades experience is complete. There are lots of air boat rides for tourists. (Yes, I was a tourist.) I was expecting ducks all over the place, but that was not the case. I did see some storks which I have never seen before. There isn't any winter in South Florida, just wet and dry seasons just like the tropical parts of South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean islands. This is the dry season. Bet you're glad to made the grocery run before the storm hit and you are at least temporarily snowed it.
