Living in Northern Florida, we see more of a change in seasons than our neighbors further south. As I am writing this blog, the temperature is about 80 degrees F and the relative humidity is low. It's a gorgeous Spring day and I love this weather but it doesn't last very long. Spring and Fall are very short seasons. Winter varies, this year we had some cold weather but it was consistently cold and no real extreme freezes. Last year, we had about a week of hard freezes so we had to do something to protect our navel orange tree.
North Florida is considered a sub-tropical climate. Sometimes it feels like we live in a rain forest!
Then of course there are hurricanes! 2004 was the year we experienced more than our fair share of the monster storms. Although they were technically Tropical Storms by the time they reached us, we were still without power for one week with each storm......and there were three. Charley, Frances and Jeanne came calling and they were very unwelcome guests. I had just started scrapping and thought I would spend the down time with my new hobby. I printed photos and prepared journaling cards using the computer before the power went out. I was so smug thinking I had found a way to relieve the boredom when the power went out. Unfortunately, it was so humid I couldn't work with the paper. It wouldn't cut right because of the humidity!
And then there is Summer........although it's very hot for those seven months.........it does have its perks!
Have a great weekend!
