It looks as though nature (or Divine Providence) is sparing the Miami-Lauderdale, FL area "Is-Aye-Ee-Ahs" That is a nice way to begin August! I guess that this is a temporary "reprieve" though as the next 60-70 days are a virtual shooting gallery in the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico!
I wish all our palm-loving, palm nurturing & growing members the very best of wishes (and freedom from bad storms) during this stressful season ahead.
It kind of makes up a portion of my mind that asks itself: "what do I most fear as a threat to keeping my palmy landscape intact?" Is in tropical cyclone season, or is it winter with it's potentially fatal, or at least damaging freeze/frost events? I tend to lean towards fearing winter's cold more, because it seems more likely to get a bad cold spell than a hurricane. What do you all think? Which type of weather peril brings more shivers down your spine: cold waves or really bad storms?
