If you say so, but we're really not having a cold spell. It's a pretty typical start of the year. True, we've had warmer (I've gotten mosquito bites on NYE when I was down here in my youth), but we've already had a couple days a few weeks back that got down into the upper 20's at night and only into the 40's for the daytime high. My horses think this is Autumn vacation compared to what it was like during the times up north (now their impressions of the Summers here are probably a different story).
Around 1900 we hit our low for tonight at about 40/41 F. It's a couple of degrees warmer now and working it's way to the lower 60's by tomorrow afternoon. I don't even have the heat on since the fireplace is enough to heat the area nicely.
Would be fabulous riding weather except that it's suppose to rain (I'm hoping not). Wednesday was the last day of hunting season (for deer) so if the rain stays away we can hit the woods and the fire lines.
I used to live in the low country too... and often at this time of year, when I am buried under mounds of snow wiping ice off my glasses I ponder which I dislike more....
Freezing my backside off for 4 months of the year, or 4+ months of humidity so thick one has to cut it with a knife in order to breathe. Go outside in the summer down there and you are soaking wet in minutes because it's not only hot but humid, humid, humid.
I have yet to draw a conclusion other than wow is it refreshing to have also lived somewhere when it was 90 with sun shine and low humidity...it was very enjoyable.
