Florida has been experiencing unseasonably warm weather recently, though here it is not as welcome as the 60 - 70 degree temperatures in the Northeast has been seeing. I'm not ready for shorts and temperatures in the 80's yet, and neither are our plants, which must have been dreaming of an early summer this week.

What a change this morning! Suddenly the air pouring through my open office window has a welcome chill, driving off the computer-generated warmth. Time to switch back to long pants, maybe even break out some soup and our Christmas hot chocolate. Alas that the cooler weather that brings blessing to us brings hardship to more northern climes!

I'm not unmindful that the new temperatures that are wonderfully cool to us are the same ones that were wonderfully warm to our loved ones just yesterday.

Jonathan and I walked to the store yesterday in the wonderfully warm weather. Jonathan was only wearing a onesie and his shoes - anything more and he would have been sweating! But a lady yelled out her window at us as she was driving by, "that baby's gonna get sick! you'd better put some clothes on him!" It was 70 degrees out!

I don't know how warm it got in Rochester, but I do know that all the snow was gone by the end of the day and I enjoyed the 2 miles of walking between campuses on Thursday with no jacket. After dance I came home in shorts and a T-shirt. Today (Friday) it is hard to believe I went outside without hat and gloves, and the snow is back on the ground.
