Yeah huh? It's flippin' 32 degrees here and 23 degrees with the wind chill! :eek: No one wants to swim in THAT!

It's sunny, but colder than it's been since 2003. Will be nicer by the weekend though when it climbs back to the mid 70's.

Im sure you don't REALLY understand the UKers pysche

I mean skywatcher isnt joking.... at 32 degrees, ukers will be seeing blizzard beach closed and thinking EH? what? why's that then?

I promise you if you were riding the busses you'd hear that classic "I mean, if it's a bit cold when you first get in, so what" :lol:

Hmmmmm....makes me wonder...

If they closed BB in December 2007 on the day we departed WDW? I think it was the 17th. It was only about 35 degrees around 1:00 p.m.

Wicked cold, in my book! :lol:

I'd swim in that temperature.

Bit cold when you first get in but as long as you keep your shoulders under... :lol:

Ok, seriously tho, isn't there a health risk about swimming in water that cold? Can't it cause your body to go into shock or a heart attack or something? Or is that just an old wives tale?

It needs to be a lot warmer than 32/0 before I'll go anywhere near it.

The water around Lady Elliot was like a warm bath - except where it got a bit deeper then it was pleasantly refreshing!

And I am at least half-English so it's not just the blood! :point:

we were in WDW in 2003 and it was soooo cold, I swore then I could never take that risk and go in the winter months.... give me heat, humidity and lovebugs in Sept... I'll handle them LOL

We went in 2003 and said we'd never go again that time of the year and what did we do last year :lol: It was quite warm though, I think it was unusually warm December.

We never went in the water once in December, it was too cold for us, the children did though.

Chris is the same as you :lol: if and it's a big if at the moment, we go back this year then it will be end Sept/beginning of Oct so that we can catch the beginning of Food and Wine and MNSSHP.

Val

Wendy

That has always been our timeframe, last week of Sept first 2 weeks of Oct and we love it. Crowds manageable, MNSSHP and F&W... really it just doesn't get much better.

We went that time in 2007 Val and we really enjoyed it. I've got a photo of Main Street towards the castle and there isn't a single person in it - it's amazing really.

I don't go much on the love bugs :lol: but I can put up with them :D
