Weather in Florida

You never know what the weather will bring here in "sunny" Florida.
After a pretty cold winter last year, we have really had a nice, mild winter this year.  The tulip trees have all bloomed out nicely, and my azalea bushes are about half-way covered with beautiful pink, red, and white flowers.  I noticed the other day that even the bridal bush is showing some white blossoms.  
But, alas, last night we had a hard freeze.  This morning I had to break the ice in the chickens' water dish.  My beautiful azaleas are a bit droopy.  But that's the story of weather here in Florida.  There's an old saying going around that if you don't like the weather here, just wait around a few minutes and it will change.  Tonight we're supposed to have another hard freeze, 23 degrees.  Tomorrow night, a mere 58 degrees.  Go figure!
