the low in florida was 35 F, which is 1.6 C.
my family moved to south florida when i was 10 years old.
that december, it was so cold there, my sister got pneumonia
my mother drove us around in the sun-heated car to keep us warm.
now houses there are better heated for the most part, but still,
all glass and tile and cool surfaces, no cellar.
my neighbors are already in florida for the winter, and friends will be packing up to go soon.
last week, i was feeling a little jealous, until the sun came out,and i realized what they will miss!
|still some open water|
|but the falls look funny!|
