As the Northern US gets beaten up by oblierating snow storms and chilling below zero temperatures, I should hold my tongue and be thankful to live in Gainesville, FL. However, it is not all sun and fun as you might expect. We have been contending with below freezing nights, getting in to the 20s and crippling our plants. I took my dog out in the yard the other morning to notice that my flowing fountain had chunks of something in the second tier, only to discover that the chunks were clusters of ice, and the 1st tier had frozen a bit as well. Icicles also adorned the top tier - something which I have not seen in Florida for years.The next morning the water in the fountain was frozen solid, so I am going to keep it off until our climate is more tolerable.
Today's weather is pretty hospitable. The most notable problem with our climate is that one day it is freezing cold, the next is balmy or moderate. This back and forth can encourage illness as your body is constantly trying to understand what is going on with this instable weather.
Here are some photos of the icicles on the fountain:
