Great chance to observe FL’s microclimates

Even if Florida avoids the freeze, this cold event should cast light on FL microclimates, including eastern vs. western barrier islands, urban heat islands, and the lake effect, especially for South Bay to Pahokee.

what's the link for?

You need really cold weather and weather stations all over, like the live interactive map from weather underground to observe microclimates,

It should have contained a projected heat map showing that peninsular Florida is the only place east of the Rockies to avoid the worst of the cold. I was just saying this is a great chance for folks to report on microclimates; the map I posted is too meta to provide predictions on such things.

      I just happened to find this on YouTube and I thought it was really cool to see. Look at the water.

      Saturday I visited Mackay Gardens in Lake Alfred, FL, about 60 miles south of Orlando. It is the former estate of Alexander Mackay, a Scottish businessman. He had a house built in 1915 and hired John Morley, a British botanist to design the gardens. Morley was friends with David Fairchild and DF. would send him plants to try out.
      There are some old palms there one specimen really intrigued me. It looks like a Sabal palmetto but the inflorescences extend beyond the foliage. There is a tall mature Sabal yapa on the grounds not real far away. Could this palm be a hybrid between S. palmetto and S. yapa?

      I recently went to this state park and wanted to share some of the sights here.  It was an enjoyable day trip, didn't cost much, and mixed just enough native, untouched Florida with some nice landscaping.  If you would like to visit yourself, you can get more information  here: https://www.floridastateparks.org/parks-and-trails/ravine-gardens-state-park
