Since you insist, from the weather thread:
I remember the worst Easter egg hunt we ever took our kids to. I was visiting my brother down in Miami and the egg hunt was on the real "Miami Beach". A local radio station had buried plastic eggs in the sand, said there was money in them, and blocked that part of the beach off with yellow tape.
Man, was there a lot of people there and I don't think some of them even had kids with them. Right at 11am they "opened the gates" and a stampede of people hit the beach with adults digging in the sand like dogs. Our kids only got a few eggs and the cheapo radio station was only putting like 3 pennies to a nickel in each plastic egg. Terrible scene with a bunch of kids crying and never again!
And to top it off it was hot, about 85 degrees, with the sun beating down and no shade. Not my idea of an Easter egg hunt.
