When you think of South Florida, you think of warmth and sunshine. But I’m here.
We were woken up by a loud downpour sometime in the middle of the night. It’s sunny now, but I’m not sure how long that will last. I do know the current warmth is short lived.
A FREEZE WATCH HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR ALL OF RURAL INTERIOR SOUTH FLORIDA FOR LATE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. COLD HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD SOUTHWARD INTO THE AREA THROUGH TUESDAY BRINGING THE COLDEST AIR OF THIS WINTER SEASON TO THE AREA. FREEZING TEMPERATURES WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE INTERIOR AREAS AWAY FROM THE IMMEDIATE COASTS IN ALL SOUTH FLORIDA COUNTIES.
I know it says “rural” interior South Florida, but that’s somewhat misleading. Where does rural begin?
When I lived here, back in the late 60s/early 70s, the world ended at Military Trail, a few miles from the coast. Now civilization is much farther west. The land under this condo was surely swamp a few decades ago.
Bottom line – we come to Florida and the warmth leaves. There’s a joke here somewhere.
