That does sound cold for Florida, it is typical of what we have had in St.Louis the past few days.  But, this morning we are experiencing what you typically get, 39 degrees

Go figure?

Oh well, the shop is swamped with work and it is warm in there.

Happy New Year to all!

Down to 8 last night and this morning, that is right next to the house, which is usually about 5 degrees warmer than the actual temperature.  The hard part is it dropped from the mid 40s.

My remote weather station said 15 at 4 am when I got up to use the bathroom.

I had to winterize the bus to keep everything from freezing and run a heater in it last night. I am ready for 70 degree weather again as I have an outside job waiting.

It was 6 degrees when the dog and I went out at 5AM this morning.  Some change from the high 40s of the weekend!  I have the heat in my shop set at 45 degrees and before last night it hadn't really come on  very much, at all. 

I goosed it to 62 this morning but didn't bother to light the stove since I wasn't going to be working here all day long. 

I worry about the produce growers in FL, they stand to lose an awful lot when the mercury plunges and stays down for some time.  At least up here we expect it to be cold; the husband was pretty happy to see that I brought up some wood for stove this morning!

Yup we got about the same here Mike & KD. Don't think it broke 50 by much today and last night was down around 30. Brrr!

Call me a wuss but these ole FL bones don't work so good at them tempatures ...  Thankfully a buddy from the Classic Glastron Club was in town from MN so I got to play hooky. Sat in the cozy warm "End Zone" on 776 eating, drinking & bsing about old boats.

I prefer to refer to it as a "snow day" ...?

True. And a legitimate concern, but this one shouldn't be a big deal. The icy north wind has died way down so it should start warming up a lil bit soon.

Tell ya what always catches my attention is when we get these cold snaps we also get super low tides. I'm sure there's a meteorological explanation for this but it never ceases to amaze me.

Stay warm y'all!

i was measuring for a top on a 38 chriscraft yesterday i had to climb dond to it it was aboput 3' below the dock and resting on bottom.

Mike: Did you see that the famous Pirate ship in Tampa ran aground last weekend on New Years ? I heard they sent another boat out to gather the 100 plus people and that ran aground as well.

Very cold indeed. 27 when I left this morning at 7:00. Got pretty nice during the day but its back down there again tonight. I guess that will be it for awhile.

  Speaking of the tides! Has anyone noticed the tide charts are wrong lately. I went out last weekend at like 1:00  and high tide was suppose to be around 3 but the tide was real low and still going out. Talked to the owner where I keep the boat and he said they were talking about that earlier. I guess the charts aren't always a good reference.

Y'all know I would I normally be POOH WOOING a thread like this as we would be - 25 º C overnight and -teens day time. ( 30 and forty BELOW aren't unheard of this time of year either) but we are having the same weather as you in my little corner of the great white north. Yesterday's high was + 5 º (around 38º F) and tomorrow is suppost to 6. At three this afternoon the snow (what there is left of it) was melting 3 hours + north of the 49 th. When I got home at 6 it had just crossed to below freezing.

You might as well come up here for some ice fishing and a game of hockey.

Looks like we'll be back in the 70's this weekend. Love Florida this time of year. The gods give us just a taste of winter then right back to perfect weather.

It seemed Darren loke it was colder if it didnt snow, just freexing and bareground. made for some good ice though. been out ice fishing at all?

JuneC

Miserable... that's what it is.  I'm gonna have to move south.  Thankfully, it doesn't last and serves to make me appreciate all the nice weather we get. 

Darren, looks like you got all the snow last year, eh?  Guess that'll have to do you snowbirds for a year or two.  Crazy weather patterns.
