9 January Arctic front arrives in Miami

Yes, even south Florida is in a small way suffering like most of the Northern Hemisphere. Dramatic change in weather here as an Artic Cold Front engulfed us bringing rain and wind and causing the thermometer to plummet to close the freeze point. A state of emergency has been issued for the citrus fruit farmers as they may lose their crops.
Unfortunately we had to brave the elements early this morning to dinghy in to return the car. We were glad to be back on board and have spent the rest of the day on board trying o keep warm - decided to have roast chicken to heat the boat up (- our main heating has not worked for several years but we run the generator to use an electric fan heater when we really need to warm up).
