March 15, 2017 — North Central Florida

Fourteen days ago we hit a record of 87 degrees. Today we barely made 50 degrees, and prediction for tonight is a record-breaking low of 27. Our day shimmered with intense sunlight that looked warm and inviting but was bitter and unpleasant. No more shirtsleeves, nary a sandal, and all windows are closed as we wait for what we all pray is the last hurrah of winter.
