    Certainly stormy today - totally ruined our plans for our final day - but we can’t complain as we had beautiful weather the rest of the time.

    Thank you. We're home and trying to sleep off the jet lag. Not long for yours now. Hope you have a great time.

    Actually, we're still all over the shop this week. We had three very overcast and grey days early in the week, with rain being threatened each time but largely ignoring us until Tuesday (2 days ago), with some seriously heavy downpours that dumped more than 2ins of rain on the area in little more than 24 hours. We also jumped up to 90F (32C) on the 9th and then dropped to 73F (23C) the next day. We'll be back to 88F (31C) in a couple of days, and then slip back to 73 again (in theory), so it's hard to predict from one day to the next right now. We are definitely not in summer patterns yet, but the fact it is varying so wildly suggests we could be in for a wild summer! And, from insisting there was no serious rain in the offing, we got a real drenching with very little notice (and some serious thunder and lightning up and down the state).

    Hang on to your hats, folks...!

    Yes, it was definitely one to be indoors for, and completely out of the blue (well, the grey in this instance!). We did need it, though, as we've been so dry for so long

    And now we're on stand-by for a major storm system coming through tomorrow, with the possibility of strong winds (even a possible tornado), lightning, thunder and the whole nine yards! Then the temp is supposed to drop from 88 (today) back to 73 the day after the storm.

    Time to get the gardening done today....!

    Well, it got squally and unpleasant for most of the afternoon (and evening), but the promised thunderstorms didn't make an appearance, and the showers that we got, while heavy, didn't last long. I doubt if we got a quarter-inch of rain in the end, so we're still on the wrong end of the rain deficit for the past 6 months. It HAS got a lot colder overnight, though. The original forecast was to be in the low 70s today, with the cold front following the storm system, but we have barely struggled back to 63F (17C) today, which might not sound too bad from the UK perspective but is damn cold for April in Florida!! We're supposed to be back to the mid-80s in a couple of days but, with clear skies and persistent winds, we now have fire weather warnings in effect this week.

    It's never dull, though...!

    Did I say mid-80s? How about 90F (32C)? Because that's where we're at yesterday and today, with the 'cold' air (actually, quite fresh and refreshing) passing through in little more than 24 hours and going straight back into the 'high' side of April. We should be around 82F (27.7C) at this time of year but we've gone straight past that and are pushing record levels. Things are supposed to cool off this weekend, and for the next week or so (but only to around 81-85F), and then it looks like we'll be on fast-forward to summer. There's no real humidity in the atmosphere yet, but the ultraviolet radiation levels are at very high levels, which means it is REALLY easy to get a 5-star case of sunburn right now. SPF50 should be the basic level of protection when it's like this, so make sure you check the label of your sunscreen before you buy!
