Well, the holidays have come and gone once again. Things are scaling down and it's time to put all the decorations away. Ugh! I hate this because once I take all the festive decor down the house looks so cold and bare. I'll be tackling that this weekend:( Ah well...
As you may know, I live in tropical paradise. Sunny Southern Florida to be exact. And I will tell you that yesterday evening Spokane, Washington and us had something in common which is not a good thing. We were both 48 degrees at 7PM! Amazing! We woke up to 35 this AM! Steam actually is misting from my mouth.
If you know anything about South Florida, this is NOT normal. The year we moved here from Southern New Jersey there was a citrus freeze so the temps were in the thirties when we got here-incidentally that was in the mid eighties. Apparently, that lasted about a week but according to the experts this is a record cold snap for us and though you may call us the biggest wimps, LOL it is cucking fold to us *grin* This is forecast to go for a couple of weeks. The crops will be in serious trouble if it does. We have not surpassed a daily temp of 60 something all week and it is forecast to remain about the same at least for the next week.
I will tell you that I actually don't mind. I'm a New Jersey girl at heart and it is a nice change from the norms of 75-80 degrees year round. But clearly we are not used to this long-term:)
Stay warm and have a wonderful day...
