"That means a likely wind chill advisory for most of South Florida with "feels like" readings overnight in the 20s and 30s. Actual temperatures Tuesday morning are forecast to range from 39 degrees in West Palm Beach to the mid-40s in Fort Lauderdale and Miami."

This side of the pond it is a case of the soil being saturated, rain following rain, Spring tides, and wind aplenty. (The latter a product of the Jetstream and not the populations recent excessive consumption of Brussel sprouts). Flooding is a problem here.

But you on that side seem to have drawn a very short straw. Best wishes to anyone affected. Stay safe.

Yesterday they were forecasting a wind chill as low as -45 for tonight (or tomorrow morning) around here, but since then they've thankfully revised that to a more temperate -30. My current temp:

(that's -17C for you non-Americans)

**laughing** I'm inside of my house with a 'nice cozy' fire running . . .wearing a tank top, thermal underwear, sweat pants, a heavy turtle neck, a wool sweater and a toboggan. . . "cap" (for you yanks up yonder) . . .wool socks and arm warmers. . .

we've been able to achieve a hefty 57 degrees (F) with our fire going full tilt!

I so love old houses!!

I think it's about 6 degrees outside.

Though, in all fairness - I lived in AZ and went from 127 (during a heatwave) to 75 when I moved to California - and had to watch the fireworks on the fourth of july in a heavy winter coat.  This must be absolutely miserable for those in So. Florida.

In His Mercy,
