may never end! They said that Tuesday would be the last morning of freezing temps and frosty ground. They were wrong! Then they said that Wednesday would be the last morning of freezing temps and frosty ground. They were wrong again! Now they say that today will be the last morning of freezing temps and frosty ground. I sure hope so. We have broken so many records with this infernal cold. We've not seen a high of 60 degrees since the new year started. That's now 15 days in a row of below 60. The last time that happened....records were not being kept. The Gulf of Mexico temps off the coast are below 50 degrees for the first time ever. Or since records have been kept. We've set a new record for days of temps below 32 degrees. The old record was 6 days back in 1977, which was the last time we had measurable snowfall. The new record? Eleven days. They say that we should hit 68 for a high today. That would almost prompt me to put on a bikini and cavort in the back yard. Or not! I might scare somebody!!
And on a more serious note. Please remember the folks in Haiti. Such a poor country to begin with and now this horrible earthquake and aftershocks. There is a large Haitian immigrant population here in Florida, so it's been in our news a lot the past two days.
