Remember the warmer days in Florida

The picture shows pelicans flying over the waves at Cocoa Beach.



Hi my friends,

The best thing on the cold days we have just now in Florida is: the sun is back again!
It's still not warm enough as it should be, but it's getting better. There are still some cold days ahead.

I worry much more for our animals and plants. I heard stories about the manatees, sea turtles and iguanas who are suffering and dieing from these freezing cold temperatures. People are helping to rescue them all over Florida and they even open up again old electric plants, so the animals can come to warm up in the warm waters there. Sea turtles get washed to the shores, they cannot swim anymore in this cold temperatures. People help to collect them, bring them to shelters where they get good care and warm water to warm up again.

this weather has been very weird... poor Jackson, Mississippi spent so many days below freezing, that Jackson lost water because of pipe failures.
