Christmas in the Tropics - temperature dropping

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:49 am

Hey All,

we had short periods last month, but only a day here and there.
This morning it is a chilly 70 deg.F [ 22 deg.C ] outside and 75 deg.F [ 23 deg.C ] inside the house.
Humidity is however around 85 % and you can see your breath.

The trees are slowed to stopped as growing goes, and the rains are doing the watering.

If this continues as expected for the next 3 or so months, we should have a wonderful winter.

Coming from the zone where we do not dip below 55 deg.F [ 15 deg.C ] the real Tropics Laughing
and not those places that are really Sub-Tropical, pretending to be tropical.
It is however colder at 3000' [ say just under 1000 m ] in the high hills.
Stay warm.

Sigh; Our garden was white this morning from frost. And no, I did not leave the freezer open. All nature. In order to get to 23 degrees indoors I need to burn a lot of gas / firewood!

Coming from the place where winter is really winter, with night time temperatures dropping to -20 in mid-winter. Not those temperatures you guys in the tropics call cold.

-- Off to the Caribic soon, I hope, sun, here I cooommmeee! --
