Ha! We have had such great weather until the last couple of days here in the FL panhandle. Great thing is the highs are in the upper 40s and lows, until the next day or so, have been about 4' lower. I think we do get close the freezing mark in the next day or so, for a day or so.

To us, this is really great weather. And, I don't have to shovel snow to get in and out of the house, run 4 wheel drive to get to the store etc. like we would at our home in the mountains.....AND, I get fresh fish, shrimp and oysters every day!!

Yeah, Yeah, Danny, go ahead, rub it in !!! LOL

But, I don't have to put my beer in the refrigerator to keep it cold... Hell, just set it down most anywhere, if it doesn't freeze, it's good to go LOL

Where you're at, it's a day or two and things will be warm again. Here, we'll see "warm again" hopefully in May ?????

80 here on Monday, 26 this morning, supposed to be back close to 70 on Sunday :-/

Texas weather, if you don't like it, wait a bit and it will change.

I sit here this morning with coffee in hand reading what everyone is doing. The Chinook has been blowing all night, at 0655 it is 52F going up to 59F this afternoon. Tonight is our 50+ clubs' Christmas dinner so great weather for that.

John, I came to the conclusion years ago, the weather people are only sure of two things.........
1. Time of sunrise
2. Time of sunset

Of than those two things, everything else is strictly guesswork.....sometimes they are right and sometimes they are wrong.

3. Moon phase.....forgot about that one!

I AGREE, weather is definitely an "inexact science"..... Around here, if you watch 3 TV stations, all three will have different "guesses" about tomorrow's weather......

On another note, a friend (from Texas) sent me this photo of ElPaso's snow removal equipment.... It would never work here, there's no yellow flashing light on top.....

We had a heavy frost, for us, this morning. I think it got down to 28. I had snow on my fall tomatoes and on what few satsumas I had, during the big blizzard of 2017.
Sunny and 58 now. Me and the DW been hacking our heads off with bronchitis for the last 3 days. We both have cabin fever bad.
Think I'll clip the front hedges this afternoon. Maybe fish later this week.

Javi: I saw a pic of the big oak tree at Goose Island with snow all over it. May have seen the pic at www.2coolfishing.com I think they got more snow down south than about anyone.
