9 am here and I've got clear skies and 28 C. Too bad I'm in the wrong hemisphere to see the eclipse later today.

Florida is a very big state and we are in the NW corner. I had once heard that we are closer to Canada (here in NW FL) than we are to the southern tip of FL. Based on my check using mapquest, that is not exactly true, but the difference is less than 50 miles.

We have had record lows of 5 degrees F (-15C) right here in Pensacola since I have lived here.

Yeah, I am wrapping citrus, bananas and avocados now! This is the first real cold we have had--I still have unprotected peppers that are still producing and banana leaves are still green. This El Nino winter was expected to be wetter and colder than normal--it has certainly been wetter--I think we finished 2009 at somewhere over 86 inches.

Edit: I just checked the link you sent--they have raised our predictions since this morning--lowest is now 28 tomorrow night--I can handle that!

I can't believe they couldn't have gotten closer to tonight's prediction yesterday (26F)--now they are predicting 20 F--2 days ago it was not even in the 20s. I will need to seriously increase my protection now.

@ Seweryn: Images are very beautiful with the snow covered road and trees !

This morning it was minus 5 and around 0 - -1 daytemperatures. It will be like this for at last a week !

Let's hope our protected garden bananas indeed are not rotting.

@ Ante : you are very lucky with your microclimat ! You don't have to worry very much about rot. Why you don't have any big bananas in the garden like basjoo?

Thanx, I'v made these photos through the glass druing driving so they are a little blurred.

About the climate I really deplore that my isn't a litle bit warmer. If I lived in Mediterranean zone or even in Ypres my garden would be full of exotic plants form all over the wourd.

Palmpje have you seen this (This garden is in Belgium)

@Seweryn,

If this is a drive by photo, then you have a great eye to make beautiful photos. The pictures I made are never so beautiful.

About the climat: I'm glad it's warmer then your climat, but I'm still pissed off that I don't live in a microclimat like Dalmatiansoap.

I guess there is nothing to grow tropical plants like the climat of South Florida for example. My wife cames from the Dominican republic. But when you go over there in august, it is really too hot. And I think many plants we grow here, would end there totally shriveled up.

Basicly except of palms, there isn't any Musa till today (protected) that I could succesfully overwinter without killing the pstem to the ground. I will keep trying tough with good old Musa basjoo. The climat is very humid here. So it isn't all about temperature.

Beautiful Belgian garden in the link that you send ! But this garden will need a lot of protection in the winter !! And some plants need to be moved inside.

It's almost impossible to overwinter Phoenix canariensis here for example without serious protection and heating cable, and i see that he haves one in the garden.
Palms that you can grow here are Trachycarpus, Butia capitata, ...

----

about the weather: they are giving snow here for saterday !!! and i heared that in the UK the traffic is blocked because of a serious snowfall !

My two citrus are a goner. They were already near death. Maybe will order something better for the one that was in ground. Been concentrating on the bananas. Happy for the blueberries, apples and peach that need chill hours. Very doubtful anything will happen to the corms but still stubbornly trying to preserve pstem height for next year.

Ante, maybe you have "halny", heheh I'm just jocking.
Halny (pl. hala - mountain meadow) it is a wind which generally blowing only in Poland, it's very strong and also causes headache, depression or even increases number of suicides.
The stronges "halny" blew in May of 1968 - more than 300km/h
For interested
Halny - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
