wow...

43.8F at my shadehouse at 21:41EST...  

I am so amazed I am only about 10 miles south of Bubba and my temp is that much different...  Is there an emoticon for microclimate jealousy? :angry:

Maybe I should go park a bunch of cars around the shadehouse and let them all idle around the shadhouse overnight!  :o

8:50, 33 degrees, So. Louisiana.  Just slightly better than weather channel who had us going to 32 at 9pm.   That means I am headed to 26 save for a miracle.  But still zone 9b, hehe.

9F dew point is insane for central Florida. The weather station on our lake is 35.5F taken about 20 seconds ago. North wind at 5mph. No clouds, no help from the gulf with a north wind. Not good.

At 9:15, 41F with a 16F dewpoint in my part of Houston.  Insane dewpoint for here too.  Forecast low of upper 20's at the big airport.  I'll probably see 30-32F overnight.  As we say in Texas, "colder than a well digger's ass" out there.

9:32PM, 32 degrees (FREEZE), So. Louisiana.  Those clouds on the sat view are now within 50 miles of here.  I am praying.  

Note - Tad, I think there was something about a brass bra too.

Oh Boo Hoo Bobby!

My poor Fiji Fan Palm (amongst a few hundred other tender palms) is out there shivering in the bitter cold and you are complaining that your palmscrapers are in the middle 50's!!?!??  Forgive me if I do not feel much sorrow nor feel much empathy....Thats like Key West in there!  :P

believe me, Larry.... I'm feeling for you guys, big time.... I've been watching the temps in the tampa bay area for the last few hours and I just can't believe it's gotten that cold... That's colder then we've been here for the past few weeks (and I was still freezing)... But the thing is that down there it really can't last...  That florida sun will come up and fix everything by 10am.... (i hope)

10:39, 31 degrees, So. Louisiana.  Temperature drop has slowed.  There are no more stars visible to the Northwest as cloud cover has almost arrived.  Got my fingers crossed.

Yeah thanks Keith yall stole our clouds GRR!!   :angry:  :angry:

they just dropped our fcst from 38-33

Still beter than the 20's they are predicting in Houston but still what does ma nature think this is WINTER?

without the clouds (theres no reinforcements coming till the late AM!) we might make 30 in my part of the island...   the only thing that might save me would be for the wind to totally stop which isnt likely!  Or possibly an abrupt about face to south???  one can dream right?

Oh, ive been meaning to ask is an 8 degree dewpoint a bad thing??  :)

Btw Larry, I was looking at your station and holy sheit!  it looks like yall are in for a little rougher night than I was hoping for this AM

:angry:

I don't know how y'all stand that brutal humidity.  Dewpoint here is a sticky 7F!  I guess that's better than the 3F we were at this time last night.  Lots of clouds tonight, not that it matters at this point, anything that couldn't take the cold would be toast by now anyway.  So far the only thing that looks bad are the fronds on the Queen.  They are a dull green that I fully expect to become brown when we hit the 70's later this week.  Hopefully, it's still alive thanks to the Christmas tree lights and blanket wrapped around the trunk.

28.0F at 11:58pm here in downtown Natchez. Really cold out in the countryside and generally to the east and northeast of here. Keith, you're right about the cloud-shield, it looks like it's just over you and it looks to be about 10-20 miles to the west of us. Hurry up!!!!! Meanwhile the gaping hole to the east of us and over all of peninsular Florida is scary-bleak.

12:10AM, 29.8 degrees, So. Louisiana.  Well folks, I am done for the evening.  Got that day job thing ya know.  Cooling has really tapered off, maybe the arriving cloud cover will help, but I suspect by the morning we won't be too far off of that predicted low of 26.

Good night all, and good luck.

6:36AM EST-40F.No freeze here and by looking at other temp's in Florida it certainly did not look as bad as advertised.That usually is the case but NOAA has liability if they miss low and accordingly they are extremely conservative. The difference in Florida compared to the West is how quickly we normally heat up.That I think is the key factor between survive and flourish.Good luck to all and I hope things were good at your house and palms/plants!
