Cold Weather Crisis in Florida!!!



It was very cold in Miami during the past couple of days. Cold trumps everything for us tropical creatures, zOMG! I mean even the iguana that lives in the tree behind my apartment died! It was floating in the Biscayne Waterway, so sad! Plus, there was free frozen gator meat festival in the Everglades all weekend. Oy! Let's not even talk about citrus fruit and such. This was one hell of a cold front. It even snowed in Daytona, typically the land of hot rods and loud carburetors. Do you think Julia Tuttle could've pulled the wool over Henry Flagler's eyes with this one? Julia Tuttle, the founding "mama" of Miami, sent Flagler orange blossoms as proof we do not have freezes down here, just to encourage him to extend the railroad down to our hot, sticky swamp. Julia, was that a well-intentioned fib?

In any case, the cold seems to be passing. Looking forward to the disgusting sweltering subtropical heat we all know and love very soon. And to think that I wanted to go to Buffalo for college! I could've gotten a degree in hypothermia!

I loved that cold streak. Got to use my fireplace! Seriously, when I saw it was gonna be 30-something degree windchills I ran straight to Target and got a box of those artifical logs to burn. Reminded me of the good old days in Wisconsin.

I love your blog....

I have friends that live in Fl. and they were not happy about the cold weather.

I'm new to the blog world and would love for you to drop by mine if you have time. I need Bloogy friend support.

For me, the threshold for discomfort is, no lie, a swift breeze and 69 degrees.

Anything below that and I struggle to concentrate.
