Bok Tower Gardens

By: skook , 5:58 AM GMT on January 03, 2012

Start the new year off on a positive note, and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. I went to the Bok Towers Garden on Monday, and got to see an incredible place. The garden is located in Lake Wales FL, about 30 minutes southwest of Orlando, so next time you come to see mickey, put a few dollars aside and treat yourself to the beautiful outdoors.

See more of my pictures, on my in photo section! Don't let all this "doom" bring your down! Happy New Years!

“The Wet Season was now commencing in earnest. The first Rain came in the shape of a premonitory shower on October 6, after which the gathered clouds dispersed and we experienced intensely hot, dry weather. Screen thermometers at the Kambwire camp gave a temperature of 108, The Majority of the clinical thermometers graduated to 110, were found broken by the expansion of the mercury; they had been stored however in Congo cases which where painted in dark colours. On November 24 came a sudden and terrific thunderstorm, after which the rains were more and more regular until we looked for a downpour each afternoon, lasting as a rule from 2pm until sundown. So on with the exception of a fortnights cessation in the middle of January, until the end of April, when light showers betokened the beginning of the dry weather. The Rainfall in 1895-96 was particularly heavy, as shown by the excessive flooding of the Loangwa Tributaries and also by the greater rise in Lake Nyasa and the Shire River.”

Bishop, Mrs Isabella. "The Geographical Journal - John Scott Keltie, Royal Geographical Society (Great Britain)., Royal Geographical Society (Great Britain), JSTOR (Organization)." Google Books. 1897. Web. 13 Jan. 2012. .

This little passage, if from the Geographical Journal, which has been published since 1831. I understand the record keeping isn't perfect, and there is some error. This particular volume was published in the last 1890s, and shows of extreme heat, and rainfall in present day Zambia.

Just trying to spread some of my own doom and gloom.....During my time travel adventures, I didn't
run into Marty Mcfly which was a little disappointing.
