It's Warming Up!

Y'all know I don't care because I love the cold, but I know there's a lot of frozen Floridians out there who are fed up. The poor farmers have fought so hard to save their strawberry and blueberry crops, I hope they succeeded. Then tonight I saw on the news there's dying fish in our lakes because they aren't used to this kind of cold. Sink holes are popping up in places, something, I can't remember, caused by the cold.

Some neighbors don't have water because their pipes froze, including my daughter. Hubby turned ours on and off during the night to keep that from happening to us. I mean, that's something northerners have to worry about. I can't recall a time when we've had to. Folks without working heaters are using their ovens to heat their homes, causing fires...guess it's time they all got a break.

We won't get a freeze tonight. Good news!

It's warming up here, too. We might hit 46 on Friday.

LOL...I think I heard we're going to be in the 60s or 70's. That's a perfect temp for me.

I think we may have hit 50 today. Thank goodness we are finally getting rid of the snow.

Don't get too excited yet Linda, it's still early. You can dream, though:)
