Looks like I'll get some cold here later this week. I've had frost once so far in my almost 16 years here. It's fun when it gets "cold" here. The kids dress up like it's -20 and the anole lizards lose their ability to stick to the walls.  :)

22 here.I've got water lines busted at 3 different places,or at least 3 places that I know of now.Probably a lot more.Lost a  new born calf yesterday afternoon.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

Right now it's 5 degrees and the windchill is -11.  My coal stove is getting a workout but it's 75 in my house and I'm thankful I have it and don't have to use the electric heat.

Temps have fallen 18 degrees in the last 2 hours and the wind is gusting to 50mph here!  Temps predicted to drop to the 30's tonight, pretty cold for south Florida. The weather service is talking about snow in north Florida.    :)
