Frost on the Pumpkin!
Today was the coldest day we've had so far this winter. Exceptionally cold! They had forecast a low of 37. About 8:00 Rich called in from the lanai that there was frost on the yard! Of course, I grabbed the camera! By this time, the sun was shining brightly - but there was still a good amount on the ground! Wish I had gotten up earlier to see what it had looked like at daybreak!
Needless to say Rich was dressed in layers of clothes - and complained about the cold most of the day, despite it getting very comfortable during the afternoon.
Our original plans were to leave today for Ft. Lauderdale/Dania for the weekend. We had the hotel booked and the deep sea fishing boat all set up. But when we called the Dania Jai Alai fronton we learned that they were closed for a couple of weeks - and had not updated their website! And then the forecast was for 50' and 60's and 15 mile an hour winds ---- which none of us looked forward to at 7:30 in the morning in a boat on the water! So we cancelled....
But plans are to meet with Nick and Tonyia in the morning and head over to Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte for the day.
