  • OT This is just wrong.

    I had a DR appt this morning at 8:45 so go out to leave at 8:30 and the car greets me with this, like I could not see the ice on the windshield......Just wrong.

        I park in a garage but there wasn't any of those new fangled lights in 2002. You shouldn't need one in Florida

          They don't put those in our cars.... Our cars has a nice hot sunny clear day light that comes on!
          Also when weather fluctuates severely like it has be lately is pain in butt because is mess with tire pressure sensors.

              Andreas,

              Mine are waking up too but we just had a cold shot of air. I'm 9b so just a bit colder than you are. Got down to 31.6 last night.......luckily I did not see any damage.

                  i have lived in florida Jamie.
                  i would pick florida for the winter and greek islands for the summer.
                  plus you would taste better figs here in the summer :-)

                  I like this plan Andreas! Now all I need to do is hit the lottery and I'm outta this frigid tundra to split my year between two fig paradises! πŸ‘ Lol! Until then I will have to settle for thinking warm thoughts and dreaming of fig-filled Mediterranean vacations! πŸ˜‰

                  I learn so much on this forum. I didn't know cars had those lights. My 02 Chevy p/u doesn't have them, but I know when their is ice on the windshield, like Wills said. Sometimes our society tries too hard to make things easier and safer and it is always at the general publics expense.

                  I worked on the tractor most of the day today in a tee shirt. It was 40Β° this morning and 82Β° today. And yes my fig trees are starting to wake up too. My pomegranate has leaves already which surely will be frost bitten or frozen. This happens here 9 years out of 10. I need to move farther south or farther north.

                      it's 7 now and about to take the dog for a walk.

                      I think she's going to give me the "are you freakin crazy? It's cold out there" looks.

                      If i could only train her to use the toilet

                              Lol if it makes you feel better I'm locked out of growing a lot of the stone fruit trees because of lack of chill hours.

                                This morning was 39Β°. This afternoon 83Β°. -25 is just not something we do here. Geeze Mike what kind of heat do you have for your home? Do you guys sleep in basement next to the furnace?
