    Any is too much

    Ice, that is...and we got our fair share last night...and will get more tonight...I am beginning to think God doesn't understand I live in FLORIDA. There are infinitely better ice, snow and frost pictures on here but considering I've never shot ice before..well, they're okay, I guess.

    Any is too much

    Oh, but I should ask, is this disastrous cold for FL?

    Yep. And if we still have people in the world denying that global warming is a reality and that it's caused by our behaviour, they need to wake up and smell the coffee!

    errrrr, Chris, you may have noticed, before, that Donald feels very strongly about this truly, very important issue. is it because I mentioned Christmas lights, Donald? I'm sorry, I won't do it again.

    Well, one could argue that Christmas lights are using up energy resources and are not absolutely necessary, but that might be seen as a bit over-the-top. But I suspect our continued use of fossil fuels, excessive use of air travel and our obsession with our own private transport (cars, etc) are examples of us causing more damage than Christmas lights.

    Quite right! I haven't celebrated Christmas since 1982 (total waste of energy) I'd bring back Cromwell if I could, so he could abolish Christmas again. The last time I flew anywhere was in 1997 (to Scotland bizarrely), and my diesel Peugeot 207 does 55 mpg and I do about 10K a year. Do I get my free cookies now? I only want them if Katy bakes 'em.

    It hasn't dropped down to the orchards yet, but may tonight..then the price of OJ will skyrocket.
    Red is from a garden sculpture.

    It's just as cold tonight (mid-20's). While I live in NW Florida which is on the same latitude as the lower part of Morocco, the Miami area, 500 miles to the south and east is on a latitiude which would cleanly dissect Saudi Arabia and in recent years, they have seen temperatures drop into the low 30's.
    Laugh at Al Gore all you want, but there's a fair chance much of Florida will be under water in the next 100 to 150 years.
    Meanwhile, it is mittens, scarves and warm fires for this warm blooded creature.
