We're about to go into our second week of below freezing temperatures overnight here in North Florida. The one day when we actually had moisture available, the temperature only got down to 36, so we missed having the snow that was promised by weather guys. But we've got the cold!
The dogs were a little miffed that when they went to drink water, they couldn't get any. I added some warmer water on top later so they could drink.
The pool had ice on the surface. A couple of days ago, it was floating patches of ice. This morning, it was sheeted. Not solid enough for anything but pine needles or leaves to sit on top of, but still - a rarity here!
The plants didn't fare as well as I'd hoped. The aloe is definitely looking sad and this other thing (also a succulent) is still standing, but that's about all.
It was almost 11am when ZBoy and I drove down to the Capitol to see what the temperatures had done to the dolphin fountain. Darling Man drove by earlier and said the dolphins had goatees. By 11, they just had fringy bellies.
Z was fascinated by the ice. He was walking along the edge of the fountain, hit a patch of ice and nearly went in. This kind of weather and these kinds of temperatures are absolutely new to him. One day, I'll have to show him some real winter weather!
For now, though, he's quite content to spend a very chilly day doing this!
