Frost in Florida!

I’m no meteorologist and my experience here in Florida is obviously limited but it was in the 30s this morning and I’m thinking these tiny white crystals on the ground might be what those of you who don’t live in Paradise call ‘hoar frost.’

‘Hallelujah’ I said, and immediately hustled Tzuri out to play.

Her reaction?

  1. Tzuri’s first snow! frost! Cold stuff.
    What a treat for Floridians in Florida, not combing the elk/wolf/buffalo hills of the far north.
    And damn that global warming.
    We were 80 today and daffodils are starting to come up. Nobody knows what the season is, not man nor beast nor plant. Wonderful pup pics.

    1. Cold, indeed, and I had to break out a jacket I bought 25 years ago when I lived in Michigan. But it warmed up quickly. Like you say, nobody knows what season it is!

  2. Man, I would love to give that girl a squeeze, so cute. The second pic is priceless…the face AND THOSE BEAUTIFUL front paws. From Toby to

    1. She loves squeezes, is very dog and people friendly. But as a pup she gets excited and wants to play so badly she barks and sometimes scares people. Kids, especially, she loves. I think she realizes that kids are more lively and playful than adults and she can spot one a mile away. I take it your dog is named Toby and I will convey the message. 🙂

  3. Hoarfrost it is! Isn’t it gorgeous, especially as the sun rises? Haven’t heard the usage of “hoarfrost” in a long time, nor the word “chillblains,” those hive like things you get when you are stupid enough to stand at the bus stop in white nylon nursing hosiery without a snowsuit over them. Southern girl had to learn that John Deere makes snowsuits for a true purpose!! or may have just keeled over in Iowa. Built my spine, it did, for certain!

  4. Tzuri is getting so big! What a gorgeous pup you have. My son and his girlfriend are in Florida at the moment (Orlando) and were expecting summer-like temps. Not sure if they had frost, but they were surprised by the cool temps.

    1. I’m about an hour west of Orlando so likely they had similar temps. It is much colder where you are in Texas, no doubt.

      Just discovered that you also have knitting and running web sites. So cool!

      Thanks…

  5. That second shot is incredible! So alert and attentive! What very goofy weather it be indeed. No snow at all in Ashland, even Crater Lake had way less than normal. Very strange.

    1. Thanks, Gunta. All my pics lately of Tzuri have been taken with my cell phone and hence are not as good as I would like. 😦

  6. FYI: Just to remind you, given that I grade papers for a living, that I intentionally spelled the word b-a-r-e, referring of course to her shiny white brand-new grown-up canines!
