anyone else missing PV?

The actual air temp in Chicago is minus 3 and the wind is blowing 20 to 30 MPH. There is an inch or more of ice on everything from a few days ago with snow now on top of that.

Trying to think of PV, drink in hand, feet in the sand,listening to the waves and watching another great sunset.

Not going back for about 120 days and it can't get here too soon.

We have the worst winter weather on-the-go in a very many years -- it's cold and it's snowing -- both are not very common in this part of BC. Christmas here is usually green, and often wet and green, but seldom (in recent years) cold and white!!

It looks pretty though!!

I was playing a cd yesterday, of music recorded at La Palapa -- I think it's an appropriate time for that music to be played again!!

Thoughts of Vallarta!!

HA HA! I'm not missing it because I'm in PV, Bucerias, to be more precise, right now. Talked to a couple of friends in Chicago this morning, and they are not pleased at all.

Hey SenorB...

YES!!! Missing PV, is an understatement!

We have about 13 inches of snow accumulation, with a layer of ice. It's the most we've seen in this area in over a decade.

Unfortunately, I have to wait 300+ days before we get to return to paradise.

Just reading the forums, looking at pictures & reading reviews to get by...

I miss PV so much. We have nasty, cold, wet weather and lots of tourists who don't know how to drive in the snow. Yikes!

We are missing it too! Bob is right about this Chicago weather, it is just down right nasty! And we had to be out in it Sunday b/c we hadn't even started our Christmas shopping yet which is so unlike us. But we survived and we haved only 57 days till we are back again! Driving around yesterday was like driving in white-out conditions at times. Nothing like the balmy, sunny weather in PV.

Everyone, keep dreaming about PV and have Happy Holiday's!

11 days till we arrive! It's 8º here in Cleveland & we are under a winter storm warning with Lake Effect snow. BRRRRR! Not wishing my life away, but can't wait for sunset drinks on the beach. Stay warm everyone!

I'm in the middle of a record breaking snow storm in Seattle. You bet your last margarita I'm longing for some Vallarta sunshine.
