The Big Ugly Freeze
We are gripped here by some very cold weather. As the temperatures plummeted the weather man got more agitiated.. "its going to be real ugly out there" He was right.The wind was so cold it delayed my leaf hunt. That and the fact that I am still hobbling about from my New Years Eve fall down the steps... pre alcohol sadly. The nurserymen are fleecing and foaming their plants, orange growers bringing in the fruit early and Blizzard Beach is closed. Frostbite is a possibility for those caught outside in the early hours and growing queues at the doctors for "cold related " illnesses are a sure thing in these "downright fridgid temperatures". I am hunkered down contemplating redesigning this blog... DB..
