It’s Actually Cold Here


My little desktop thermometer is also reading 39F at the moment (6:45 a.m.) here in Miami. I think that’s the coldest I remember it being here since I moved back six years ago.

I know that compared to the rest of the nation, especially the upper Midwest, that’s a balmy reading, but for the farmers who supply the citrus and vegetable crops, it could be costly.

This is just Nature’s way of reminding us here in Florida that we don’t technically live in the tropics; we are three degrees north of the tropic zone line.
