Tropics to the Temperate Zone

Racing to find those hidden woolen scarves, toasty mittens and leather gloves, felt hats, winter socks, and warm coat. Bringing in our plants and covering the grounded ones with sheets and plastics. It's winter in Florida! Even if it only lasts a few days and hours, the chill is real.

Definitely a lot cooler, coming from vacation time to back to work time. From relaxing in the sun to shivering in the cold, it is quite the contrast at least Florida wise. I don't want to talk about the real freeze I've seen on television about blasting snow and blizzard weather with that old North Wind blowing everything about especially for dear friends and family in Michigan. Here in Florida we had a blustery day yesterday with a temperature of 48 degrees as I left school at four in the afternoon. Today it will be a bit warmer with a high of 59. Still very pleasant sweater weather. It is really a lot of fun to be able to wear the warmer stuff for a change. So running to find my down blanket because this comforter is definitely not doing the job.

Stay warm!
