I've never played inside.  Is it any different?

Somebody turned the Winter off, and the Spring on.  ;-()
Yesterday it was about 32-35 deg and sprinkling snow. Today it hit 60 and has a tropical feel. A cool tropical feel, but a tropical feel nonetheless.

That's good news, The next 10 days are in the 50's here. We've turned the corner.
I figure in 2-3 weeks I'll be outside playing tennis!!!

Yes, no wind, no sun...........after playing indoor for a while you get spoiled on these things.  Plus, indoor courts usually play faster than outdoor ones.

Interesting.  I spend so much time indoors with my work though that part of the fun is being outside in the fresh air and sunshine.

True, but better tennis can be had without those tough conditions!  I like outdoor courts better because the ball plays just slightly slower!

Is there a speed difference b/c they tend to use different materials to make the court?

Not exactly sure on the materials but Outdoor courts seem to have more grit (I expect so they will handle the weather better) than indoor courts.  Indoor courts seem to have less grit and therefore play faster.   I thought it was just a matter of the paint mix for the final layer as to how much grit it has.    My shoes get torn up faster on outdoor courts than on the indoor courts also.

under tornado watches???  :(what do you do when those horrible conditions happen??? you just stay at home??? I have never experienced in my life a real tornado, only one very small and it was so scary...I hope it's not like hurricane, every summer that I go to the Caribbean there's a hurricane and it's horrible...
you dont have beaches in Dallas but you live in a great city and state! :)
Ibiza is great, but it's too small, 571.04 km² and only 120,000 people in the island, 37,000 in the capital, so it's pretty boring bc everybody knows you and you know everybody, but it's a beautiful island....
now it's the time to enjoy the island til summer, any time other than summer, the whole island is empty of tourists and most clubs are not open (only Pacha is open all year round). The island is still considered to be beautiful, but tourists coming for the night life may be disappointed, though it's arguably a better time to explore and enjoy the island.
The Island of Ibiza has been well-known for its summer club parties in last 25 years which attract millions of tourists, but the island has been working to shed the prevailing "sex-drugs-and-alcohol" image in order to promote more family-oriented tourism. Sadly in summer Spanish, English, French, Italian and German tourists compete to be drunk and to take drugs, really sad, but the clubs are really the best in Spain and perhaps in all Mediterranean sea.
that's the classic song from 1984 that close all the parties here at 6:00 am, People from Ibiza:

Nah, we're to inland to have hurricanes.  By the time they get to us, it's just a thunderstorm.  Tornadoes are a way of life, but so far we have been lucky where I live.  Thank God!!!!

I do wish we had beaches, but I guess everyone can't have everything....
