Are you sure this is SW Florida?

Woke up today to 31 degrees! Now I'm from NY and used to cold weather but 31 here feels like zero in NY. I also had to leave at 6:30 am to drive to Tampa International Airport. It was quite windy so it made driving over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge quite an experience. Let's just say my knuckles were white. Driving over the SSB is an experience when it's not windy. Major cruise ships pass underneath it.
Got to the airport with a little time to spare. Got mom and Lex checked in then they had to take the monorail to their terminal. Austin and I decided to hit Burger King in the airport for an egg and cheese croissant.
Tampa International Airport lets you park free for the first hour. We made it with 10 minutes to spare. Stopped at BJ's Wholesale Club on the way home. By now the temp was a balmy 47. Final temp for today was 59 degrees.
It's supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow and back to the high 70's by the weekend.

First time I drove over the Skyway, I had to call a friend to get me through it. I nearly wet myself on the approach! But actually, is it any worse than the GWB or the Verrazano?

It's probably not any higher but it goes up and down much steeper for a shorter stretch.
