This sub freezing snap is terrible, and no return to normal temps in the forseeable future either. I have to be careful my heating oil doesn't gel up in this extreme cold.

Just on 6ABC, they said we have been stuck below freezing for 103 hours. Ugh.

Space Mountain has a 5 1/2 hour wait right now :o

edit, and now Test Track is 5 hours and 40 minutes. Someone getting in line around 6:00 won't exit the ride until the 2018! (if the car design area and line afterwards isn't counted in the wait time)

No ride is worth a 5 hour plus wait.

I agree, even if there was a coaster that was supposed to be one of the best in the world and I knew I wouldn't be back to that park, it wouldn't be worth that kind of wait to me.

That's why I skipped Test Track my first time around when it was real new.  I didn't get back there for several years, when I got to ride it twice.

Went from record lows i  the single digits last week to record highs today in the 60s. With this kind of roller coaster you don't need the parks to be open.

My daughter is at Busch Gardens Tampa today.  She hit all 8 coasters in 3 1/2 hours.  She is at 176 and i'm at 181 coasters.  She is going to SeaWorld on Monday to ride 5 more and then she will be tied with me on the Coaster Count!!!

Crowds were similar when I was there on a Saturday in January a few years ago. I didn't wait more than 15 minutes for anything.

I think I can relax now, or at least until next Sunday. That was such a nerve-wracking Eagles game.

I bought a new (to me) car today. Its a 2008 Ford Crown Vic Interceptor, a retired Federal admin car which is low wear.

It has two spotlights, can't remove them without leaving holes.

Yeah, the Orlando parks all close the water rides for rehab this time of year. With the weather being hit or miss (cold one week, warm the next) it's usually a slower time for the water rides anyway. All the waterparks are closed for cold weather (again) this week.
