I worked late on Tuesday night, trying to get as much done in my new book as I could. Of course, when I work that late I can’t just flip a switch and turn it off and fall asleep. It takes a while for my mind to unwind and relax. So it was sometime after […]

We have had a cold snap here in central Florida. Wednesday the high was only 59° and it got down to 39° overnight, and yesterday it warmed all the way up to a high of 60° and overnight it dropped down to 40°. Now, compared to what the folks in the Midwest and New England […]

It’s been in the mid-80s here in central Florida for the last couple of weeks, which the weatherman has been calling unseasonably warm. But a cold front is supposed to be coming in this weekend and they are predicting temperatures to fall into the mid-to-upper 70s by the first of the week. That will be […]

We had a lot of e-mails and Facebook posts yesterday from people asking if we were okay. Yes, we’re fine, and we appreciate your concern. The bad weather that hammered much of the southeast Tuesday missed us here in central Florida. We got some rain, but that was about it. We have some of the […]

It started raining hard in the wee hours of the morning yesterday and never stopped for more than a few minutes all day long. Many areas in central Florida were under flood watches, there were a few tornado warnings, and many areas got as much as seven inches of rain! Yes, SEVEN inches! That’s a […]

It was a beautiful day today here in central Florida, mid to upper 70s, with lots of blue sky. And to think, just a few days ago I was complaining about the cold! I’ll never snivel again. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course I’ll snivel again! I’ve always believed that if you find something […]

After weeks of cold weather here in central Florida, it warmed up considerably yesterday, with a high of 82 degrees. And it looks like we’ll be in the low 80s for the next few days. That’s nice. Well, nice except for the fact that the warmer it gets, the more stink bugs crawl out of […]

About 4 AM yesterday morning I woke up to the sound of strong wind flapping our slide-out toppers and window awnings and by about 7 our motorhome was rocking and rolling, but not in the fun kind of way. The wind blew hard all morning and I sure wouldn’t have wanted to be out on […]

We sure are glad to see warming weather in central Florida. Now if we can just stop working and get out and have some fun! After a leisurely morning, we spent much of yesterday working at our desks. Terry was busy proofing my new book, and I was busy trying to format Big Lake for […]

It has started to warm back up, here in Central Florida. Yesterday the mercury in our thermometer climbed to 72 degrees, and by Monday, it’s supposed to be all the way up to 79. Now that’s more like it! Of course, our friends who are spending the winter in snowbird hotspots like the Rio Grande […]
