Some one explain to the weather man that it is not suppose to go below freezing in south Florida. It is suppose to be 28F here in West Palm Beach tonight. That is BELOW freezing. Looks like I may need to go get some heated mattress pads for the boys and I. Geeze. I have low blood pressure and I get COLD fast at night. My hubby laughs now as it is because I put a heating pad down at my feet and turn it on about 10 minutes before bed time. It gets it nice and warm there before I have to climb into bed. Trust me, my feet are like i.c.e. at night. With low blood pressure, all the ‘layers’ won’t help because you can’t get warm to start with… you need a jump start THEN the layers to keep you warm. Trust me, it has been a long haul in learning that lesson. Let’s just hope it warms up just a bit and then gets like this for Christmas day. I love it when Christmas day is cold. The rest of the time, mid 70s would be nice.

It’s the same temperature in Pensacola… what is wrong with this picture?
Though the record low is 35F in 1925… 85 years ago… wonder if they wondered about global warming back then? Oh, and I forgot, the average hi is 76F… Cold Cold winter.

Seriously… they are predicting snow as far south as Orlando. See THIS NEWS ARTICLE from one of the newspapers down this way. And I will quote it here in case it disappears:
Although the prediction of snow in Central Florida might strike some locals as an odd event, it’s not the first time snow flakes have made it into the forecast.
Light snow mixed with rain fell over Deltona, Lake Mary, Ponce Inlet, Ocoee and Orlando on Nov. 21, 2006. Residents living in Brevard and Volusia counties saw snow flurries blowing snow on the beaches on Jan. 24, 2003.
A heavy snow flurry in Jan. 1989 destroyed many sidewalks in Jacksonville because an inch of snow fell on nearly an inch of ice that covered the pavement.
The most famous incident of Arctic weather in Florida was when snow fell in Miami and other parts of South Florida in the morning hours of Jan. 19, 1977. The weather phenomenon was an international news event because of its oddity.
The excitement didn’t last long because the snow melted soon after falling. Weather conditions returned to normal the following day.
For many residents in Central Florida, frost has been spotted on cars and lawns for several days this week.
Forecasters said there is a 30 percent chance of showers today, mainly after 1 p.m. Skies will be mostly cloudy. The high is expected to reach 55, with a low around 35.
Chances of showers increase in the evening hours.
Keep a watch for possible snow flurries and sleet in the overnight hours through 11 a.m. Saturday.

I finally get some fruits and vegies growing in my garden and blammo… we are suppose to have a cold snap come through that will bring it down to the low 30s. As in freezing. Sigh…
Where do you think this stuff comes from in winter? Australia? It was fun growing it. Maybe next year or just maybe it’ll survive the cold.
