I need to Correct my above statement. Coconut trees will grow in Sarasota County but won't produce Coconuts. Sarasota is in CENTRAL Fla. The South Sarasota County Line is the Demarcation point between S W and Central Fla.

As you drive South on Hwy 41 from Tampa, First you leave that micro Climate. But as you drive the Landscape becomes more and more Tropical.

East Coast of Fla has a huge Micro Climate because of the Gulf Stream.

When humidity is above 65%, things don't dry out. I look like a wet rag.

They are predicting we will be getting a break in the next two weeks Keith. Hang in there as reward time is almost here.

I think we are going to get a small break tomorrow and Wednesday. At least as far as humidity.

Wunderground on my phone really had my hopes up. It showed 59 for tomorrow morning! Too bad nothing else shows anything like that.
