He had to work from home today. I made a huge pot of beef vegetable soup and sent some to our neighbor. I made cornbread to go with it for supper and it warmed us up.
I don't think Floridians are wimps. You wrestle alligators and live through hurricanes.
You also put up with humidity and heat that would melt me. But it was -5'F in my yard when I went to work this morning. 17'F is almost swimming weather around these parts. It is definitely camping weather. In fact, I took groups of boys out winter camping for multiple years, often in sub-zero weather.
Just don't expect me to have any fun in 90+" weather.
