Only in Florida...

...would they cancel Winterfest because of, well, winter. Yes, it's true. The officials in Pensacola have decided it's going to be too windy Sunday night to celebrate winter. Too Windy! This is coming from a town that is accustomed to hurricanes. Category 1 and 2 hurricanes are nothing. That is 75 - 110 mph. But, that is their excuse. Too Windy!

This is the announcement:

Winds snuff out Sunday Winterfest

Due to expected inclement weather, Downtown Winterfest has
announced that Sunday night's events in downtown Pensacola will be canceled.

This is the weather forecast:

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 37. Breezy, with a north wind between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Just admit it. It's being canceled because it's too cold. We're Floridians, we do windy we don't do cold. So, winter is officially canceled in Florida. We refuse to celebrate in the cold.
