Temperatures are up to the eighties again and this is how we celebrate Christmas, South Florida style.:-)

... and I can't even send you a photo of English snow to cool you down P - we haven't had any up here in my part of Yorkshire yet. The sun just shines every day here, this December, just like Florida - but the temperature was minus seven Celsius in our garden last night; enough to cool the ardour of even the most passionate tom-cat :-)

Bring that poor tom cat inside, g! It rarely snowed where I grew up in the Carolinas either but we had average winter temp lows in the low teens to an occasional 0 Farenheit.

i could send some down to you - we got a foot and a half to 2 feet over the weekend - snow is around 3 foot to 4 foot deep in the back yard - last estimate i heard was friday morning - 102 inchs already - that was before the weekend lake effect snow -

this is what the end of january is usually like -but, the snowmobilers are here and that brings in winter tourism money -

tonight was nice, low twenties but no wind - a few stars between clouds

sweatshirt weather

enjoy the sun

brrrrr...I lived in the midwest for 5 years and New England for over six years. Winter's the best time of year down here!

What a quaint little tree. It looks so different to ours, which is full of tinsel and illuminated angels.
Yes, the British winter is splendid, bursts of sun in the cold. Crisp and lovely.

I used to have a regular tree, with lights and tons of ornaments I've gathered over the years, but not feeling well and family having drastically shrunk and good friends who used to drop by moved away, this tree has become my baby.

Hi Pris,

If you want some blizzard pictures, check out my website (I've also provided a link to an architectural tour de ma ville which is quite fun...). We'll be having a White Christmas in these parts... a song reputedly written by someone from up north living in Florida, if I recall...
