Florida Weather

We do not expect any sympathy but the weather here in Florida this winter has been one of extremes, nothing like we have experienced in all the years we have been staying here. In October and November we had record highs in the 80/90’s Fahrenheit plus on at least two occasions record lows down in the 40F mark. At Christmas it turned cold, in January record lows temperatures down one night to 27F. The picture displayed was taken at 3pm on Wednesday afternoon 6th January and is of part of one of the many orange groves I ride past on a regular basis. I rode past in the morning at about 11am but without a camera. When I got home Pam requested we drive out in the afternoon to see it. To my amazement although the temperature was back in the 60’s the icicles had not melted. Since then we have had the normal amount of rain for January, February and March all in one month! Two months to go before we return home with a touring holiday in Costa Rica starting at the end of February in the meantime.
