Deep Freeze?

Think we'll have a hard freeze this year? Mosquitoes are going to be extreme this summer if not. I don't ever recall these kind of warm temps in the month of February. Crazy!

I doubt it..I could be way off but the way the whole winter has been, I would be shocked if we had a hard freeze. But, Ric can tell you about a winter in 94 or 95 that that did happen so idk...all I can say is this winter has been a big let down.

Also, keep in mind I'm in South Florida. I think it could happen for the central and north Florida guys but I don't see it for the tropical south Florida guys.

Hard freeze? Very, very unlikely south of Alachua county. Touch freezing temp down to around Polk county? Maybe a 25% chance. Any freezing temp in Marion county-north? 60%.

How's that?

I am thinking there is not a chance here at this point...just a long hot old summer ahead. Enjoy the first two weeks or so of March until the heat starts rocking.

Yup, that's what I'm thinking too...hopefully we can ride out a decent march where it's not too humid. I don't know that I can take march-October of bad weather.

Well look at it this way. The long, hot winter is half over. Only 9 months til EOW!

Side note, I had to give one up because of EOW. The customer thought I should be cutting it every week since it was warm. Even though two weeks of winter growth is still nowhere close to one week in the summer. Great customer. I really like her and her husband. But if I did theirs, I would have to mow every other one in that neighborhood every week in the winter.

Yea, 2 weeks of winter growth still doesn't equal 1 of summer. You guys are usually about 10 degrees cooler than us down here too. I've found the edging is usually what's more overgrown than snything else( which makes sense). Was it a big yard?

I am thinking around 86 I was in Daytona for the race then went to Palm Beach. The weather was nice. I then headed up 95 toward Atlanta, I left early because of a storm coming in. I drove through the start of the storm. It snowed as far south as Miami.
