Here you go . . . my middle grandson (dreds and all) fishing off the dock at his house in St. Pete Beach, FA. Temp at the time was about 78 degrees F. (Alas, it was 32 there this morning, compliments of the USA's Freeze-a-Thon.)

Well, my winter garden is all over the house. It's not supposed to get this cold on Dauphin Island! And for over a week before its all done. I even saw something I've never seen before---The edge of the Gulf Of Freaking Mexico was frozen on Dauphin Island! I'm pretty sure I've saved most of my plants in pots. But the ones in the ground--who knows?

Wasn't the winter of 2009/10 that time where every bonsai forum went off topic because of strange forces? bom

Been snowing for days here too. It fell 30cm since the last time I was out with my garbage. Shows no sign of stopping.
The other day, I walked out to get some food, and went a shortcut by my neighboors house, I stopped, and saw the top of their trashcan's lid at my ankles.
