Admit it. You giggled a bit when you read my blog post advising how to Winterize your Florida home. It's okay. Most people would giggle at the suggestion that it gets cold in Florida
Here in Neptune Beach, we had ice in our parking lot for three solid days. There were beach bungalows with ice hanging from their trees! Now, I know that puddles of ice don't compare to the conditions up north, but the northern states are prepared for it. We, however, are not. And, if you giggled last time, perhaps this time you might nod in understanding when I tell you that we are once again scheduled for a hard freeze, with temps in the Jacksonville area dropping into the mid-20s. If you live inland, in the Baldwin, Macclenny, Glen St Mary, or Middleburg areas, it will be colder than here in the Arlington, Mandarin, or Jacksonville beaches areas, but freezing is freezing.
Protect those pipes. Protect your plants. But, most of all, protect the people and the pets around you. Check on your elderly neighbor who lives alone. Stop in and make sure that he or she is faring well.
If you have a fireplace, light it up, toast some marshmallows, and sip some hot cider. Enjoy the chill while it lasts. This is Florida, after all! We'll be back to beach weather in no time.
