It has cooled down some here from yesterday's temperatures in the
80's. It's about 55 degrees out presently, and the weather people are
saying it may get into the 30's or 40's tonight. I'm keeping an eye on
the temp, since, if it gets really cold, we have to cover the fruit trees.
I haven't lived in Miami all my life, though; I was born in
Wisconsin and still have a brother and a sister that live there. Once I
chided a Canadian friend for sending us all that cold weather that comes
down over the border. "Don't blame us!" he said. "We warm it up quite a
bit before we send it on to you."
It's amazing the different kinds of things that can be sent over
the internet. First text, then graphics, then sound files, and recently
full-motion clips. If I were writing this a few years from now I could
probably send everyone some sunshine. I'd gladly share it.
