dispatches: January 2010

18 JANUARY 2010

Frozen Florida: At the end of a week of freezes, a neighbor down the street got frisky and hosed down a tree branch. Result? Gorgeous icicles on Jan. 10 in Rockledge. See the photos.

From chills to sweat: It was freezing here in east-central Florida a week ago. Then there were record high temperatures yesterday (82 in Melbourne). Craziness. But the ice sure was pretty on Jan. 10 - even if manufactured by a neighbor and a water hose. We did have sleet on Jan. 9, though, followed by a few snowflakes. Craziness. Now my tropical palms are paying the price, with brown fronds and a generally pathetic demeanor.
