Cold Front

This morning: 8 degrees F in NJ, 42 in Central Florida

Winter in Fl means citrus, kumquat (photo), the occasional cold snap which forces you to protect all your tropicals planted in the illusion of living at the equator. When the cold is over, you move back into the cocoon of your subtropical paradise.
This photo was taken in NJ a few years ago under similar weather conditions. Believe me, I would never go out at our present low temperatures and fiddle with a camera.

42 F? In SoCal it doesn't get that cold even at night.

At least not very often.

Just reading about it makes me shudder.

Don't you feel sorry for me in NJ? :-)

That was the early morning temperature. Maybe 'up north' in Ocala, the bird bath froze.
