Well, Good Morning to you all. I apologize in advance because today I don't have a card for you, I do, however, want to share a few pictures I have taken this week.

As you know, I live here in Sunny Florida, Plant City, actually, Winter Strawberry Capital of the World. It's beautiful here and sunny, and usually a great place to live....except when it is FREEZING outside. Now I know that where you live you may have 15 feet of snow and I also know that we have freezing temperatures from time to time, but it usually warms up during the day and usually only hangs around for a day or two. Not this past week or so. This is what I saw on my way to town yesterday about 2PM.

They irrigate the strawberries constantly so that they get a layer of ice on them and it protects them, hopefully. Then, because we pulled so much water from the aquifer, we get sinkholes. There is a new one about 1/2 mile from me.

Dear Mother Nature, I know you want to change it up a bit and keep us guessing, but
this is Florida. We can't handle it. We don't even have warm clothes, don't usually need them. Could you please get us back to our normal temps for this time of the year? Thanks, A Florida Cracker

Thanks for stopping in. I will have some clipboards and frames for you tomorrow. See ya then.


  1. Bad weather, Good pictures.

    Sending warm thoughts your way.

  2. I love your pictures. Dad went down to Florida for two months to escape the cold weather. He got out before it was 0 or below. However, where he is the temp is 32 with a wind chill of 23. I know he doesn't have really warm clothes with him. You poor Florida people. I hope it warms up quickly for you and for my favorite strawberries.
