    This thread should be preserved so people -20/30/50 years from now- can look back to see the nutty winter of 2012/13.

    Should not have any frost here tonight but it is chilly for sure, especially considering it is the middle of March. Most of this week the mornings have been pretty brisk with almost perfect conditions by mid morning.

    Interesting enough Orlando, over a 100 miles North of us, is 8 to 10 degrees warmer this morning.

    BTW Wunderground.com is reporting a 9:00 am Temperature of 47.9 at the BILLS LAWN AND LANDSCAPE weather reporting station.


    As a general rule the East Coast of Florida is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer than the Gulf Coast of Florida. Bahama Breezes and the Gulf Stream are major factors that cause this. Rainy season lasts longer on the East Coast and the soil has more SOM. Fact is Homestead Florida has some of the best soil and growing environment in the country.
