    Troy, it will probably be cooler than you are used to. According to the Weather Channel, for Cape May in April, average high is 60, average low is 43. So expect lows in the 30s and highs in the 70's when we get there.

    It's 34 & sunny today in Cape May... I don't know I would consider that damn cold. I think the 6" of snow and 22 was a whole heck of a lot colder. 34 is balmy! :)

    We were in Cape May for graduation March 20th and it was so freekin cold! We had a 10 minute walk in gale force winds and sleet. It really sucked. I couldn't feel my face, hands or feet by the time we got to breakfast. By the time graduation came along, it warmed up a bit but not much! I don't think it was so much the cold - it was the wind that just cut right through ya!! I guess it could have been that being from Hawaii, our blood has thinned out a tad..... ;)

    Rainy and cold this weekend so D181 graduation can be good next weekend.  Nothing against Charlie Company, just looking for great weather next week.  The bite of the wind coming across the cape will make it feel a lot colder also.

    Wow, its been 10-20 degrees warmer here in MI. I would have thought Cape May would be warmer since it's a bit further south, Oh well. Not like I have not dealt with the cold the last 6 months.

    I'm getting excited myself. I have been busting my butt and dieting to make sure I get my weight down. The pushups and sit ups I have down. I am not too worried about the swimming, I have always been a strong swimmer, I'm more worried about my run. But I am sure the CCs can help me with that, haha.

    Do you do any running or anything to get in shape? I set my alarm for 730 even if I hit the snooze button alot. Going for a nice long walk at a brisk pace (2-3 miles) will tired you out too. Do that sometime in the late afternoon and by 9 or 10, you will start to feel tired. I normally take my dog with me. He passes right out soon as we get home, haha.

    I just hope the wife doesn't spend all of our tax return money while I am gone, lol.

    Hah, this is the first return I have gotten in the last 5 years.... So yeah, anyway, I bought a nice GPS, a few small things for the wife, and the rest went in savings for furniture when we move.
