BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Welcome to our winter weather in North Florida!! I thought the summer weather was strange in 2009...is that a wintry mix coming out of those clouds? Seriously, if we get snow here, and I actually see it..Just how many photos do you think I'll take? (and post)
and I thought the mush of plants that I posted yesterday was sad....maybe the gardens need a good freeze. Stay warm!!

Cold for you - warm for us. A -15 degrees predicted on Wednesday night. Stay warm.

Bonnie said...

So sorry to see your photos from yesterday. Wow! Hopefully the temps will get back to normal for you.

Dave@TheHomeGarden said...

I wish we had temps that warm! ;) I would be out working in the yard and greenhouse. Our highs don't get above 32 for the foreseeable future. Our normal highs should be around 45.

Marsha said...

Sorry Darla...that would be a heat wave for me :)

If you do get snow I look forward to your photos. I remember last year when you had a cold spell and created the ice with the garden house...gorgeous

Susie said...

Geez, I have been telling my hubbie we need to move to FL for the warmth, maybe not!?!?!?

It may get down to single digits the end of this week here. Now that's cold.

Lois said...

Yes it's cold! I will have to take quite a few pics too if we do get any winter precipitation. I have my grandkids staying with me this week starting tomorrow so that would be fun!

sweet bay said...

It's cold here too, with temps down in the teens at night. A wintry mix is predicted for us at the end of the week too, but I'm cynical -- it seems that everytime snow is forecast, we don't get it! The mts to the west make forecasting a very tricky business.

s'now ones guess.

Mr. McGregor's Daughter said...

Wow, that is cold for you. Bundle up and make some hot cocoa. (See, I can be sympathetic.) Take lots of photos of the cold so you can remember it in painful detail.

George said...

I don't think I've ever felt the cold as much as I did when the temperatures were in this range while I was at FSU. I'm convinced that cold feels colder in Florida. The weather reports say we're going to stay in this cold for the week. I can't wait for Spring!

Deb said...

that looks like our forecast also...cold all week...what ever happend to Global Warming...LOL

Tom - 7th Street Cottage said...

If it snows, that blanket of white stuff will make it feel warmer. I think the cold without snow, especially a dry cold, makes it feel harsher on the skin. Stay warm. We're here with you in spirit. It's 28 degrees right now.

Roses and Lilacs said...

I didn't realize the extreme cold was reaching so far south. It's miserable here with no warm up in the forecast.

My granddaughter in Florida also complains, but she is quick to say she will never visit us in winter. 4 degrees yesterday and WIND!

Teresa said...

I feel your pain... My water was frozen this morning and my heater hasn't stopped .... period.

I do NOT like this weather!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

They were showing on the news how cold it is there. I always thought of Florida as just being sunny year round.
I hope you do get some snow!

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

What is wrong with that picture! Snow in Florida. That is just not right somehow. It is suppose to be sunshine and eighties everyday in my little mind ;-) I just so not associate cold with the name Florida. Well girl if you get snow I will smell the smoke coming off of your camera clear up here.LOL!

bennie and patsy said...

OH No! if it gets your garden who can cheer us up with lovely flowers this winter?

Thank you for sending prayers my way on a difficult day.
As cold and awful as your Florida winter may seem, it's warm compared to where I live. :-) Cold is such a relative thing, isn't it?

Becca's Dirt said...

It is soooo cold - I haven't warmed at all today. We could see some of those flurries on Thur too. That would be exciting. Stay warm and get well soon.

Dirt Princess said...

Whew it is COLD!!! I just built a fire

Barbara said...

Thanks for visiting and commenting.
Surprised to see such low temperatures in Northern Florida.

I see you are making good use of your new camera.

Dorothy said...

Hi Darla,
Tell your husband to turn on the water hose and send us some of those ice creations!! I always think that's so neat! We had snow flurries here in MS this morning.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Cold here too, Darla... Our highs are in the 20's and lows about 10 --or less. GADS---it's miserable. BUT--I too would love to see some snow!!!! Bet I can beat you on the snow photos--if we get some !!!!! ha ha ha ha

Bundle up and stay WARM.
Hugs,
Betsy

Kate and Crew said...

YES! THE WEATHER IS SOOOOO COOOOLD HERE TOO!!! This is soooo not Florida weather. Our weather guys are calling it the coldest weather in 9 years. If you get ANY snow, you have got to post pics!!!

I'm off to bundle up and get fetal on the couch.

Stay warm!!!

Darla: That is a freezing snap for you for sure. You might get to see some ice. We got so much snow today I had to clear the driveway three times and it is covered again.

Jake said...

Very cold... for you guys. If we get enough snow we may go below 0f this weekend. We already hit 5f this past Sunday morning. The cold on the eastern side of the country is crazy.

Jake

I know it is sad when winter comes. But it is really good for the land. Not to mention all those bugs that need thinned out.
