OK, so I know it's not literally freezing but observe the wind chill temperature below too. We actually have a "wind chill warning" in effect for heaven's sake. That high of 58 was last night just after midnight.
I also know most of you (except our US West Coasters, the Aussies, and our occassional South American blogger) are having it much worse. For the record, I was in Massachusetts for two weeks last month so I am recently reminded of what "freezing" , "cold", and "wind chill" really mean.
But for once, we can't gloat over our sunny tropical clime whilst you freeze your butts off everywhere north of here. You can also be glad your Florida vacation was not scheduled for this week. Oy, our poor tourists! I do feel badly for them.
Prior to my trip North last month, I cleaned my closet of the sweaters and jackets that never get worn here. It feels somewhat futile to drop that stuff at Goodwill in South Florida, but this time it might actually have done some good. Which reminds me, I keep seeing news video of the zoo animals being heat-lamped and the iguanas falling out of the trees but I have yet to see a story about how the multitudes of homeless here in the Sunshine State are handling this truly wintry weather. Go figure.
No worries though, we are forecast to be back in the 70s by Thursday, so come on down!
Here it is, officially freezing - and then some - in Ft. Lauderdale (or so sayeth the Weatherbug)
