north florida - wild florida

01:00, a rain event woke me up. gusty winds, hard rain. only last for a little while. 0.15"
07:05, 51F, north wind in gusts, 5knts. partly cloudy, sunny. guard dog in yard. pancakes for breakfast!
noon, 58F, wind from north less than 10 knts. moved some plants inside. added wheelbarrow of wood to pile in front. covered camillias, gave kiko a quilt, built a fire, picked as many tangerines as I could reach for friends..
16:30, 54F, wind's died down. fried oysters for supper. chore time.
19:00, 45F, calm. venus brilliant in the west. waxing gibbous moon and jupiter traversing the heavens together tonight. got it all done - hay, feed, dripping 10 outdoor spigots since the forecast is for the mid-20's and the dogs stripped the insulation from the spigots years ago.. fireplace's going at a simmer, cat's asleep on the couch, and I'm ready to relax with a book on mythology..

well, you're gonna be warmer than us tonight..
I used to raise birds until the snakes put me out of business. had everything from finches to blue and golds when it snowed here back in the late 80's and didn't loose a bird, but the snakes found my aviaries after a few years and that was that.. went to town on the eggs and the nestlings. ended up selling them all, even the blue and golds. glad I don't have anything but chickens now! stay warm!

I am located in Lorida, Florida. We are 5 miles from the Sebring Raceway. I noticed you are located in North Florida. You are going to get cold tonight. We are to get to low 30's AND low 20's the next night. I need to go to make sure all our birds are kept warm. We raise birds from the small to the large (Blue & Golds ect.) Bye for now "Cold in Central Florida"
