Not an 80 in sight anywhere and lows in the 50s. Wow. That's time to get out the cute boots and wear them with short skirts and enjoy an illusion of winter while palm fronds fritter beneath a moon lit sky. Oh my.. Sweet.
One last thing on this note... on TWC they always use the term "crashing" with regard to a wave of fronts moving across the country from the NW. May I suggest... the term should be "careening" not crashing. A wave crashes onto the shore... a series of cold fronts careen westward bring cold, damp misery to people in their path not sea foam or seashells. Just saying...
I'll make a prediction for the Winter Solstice here and now. Lots and lots and lots of stories on the End of Civilization as we know it because of the Mayan Calendar.
You heard it here first...
Snow falling in the cities on the south side of the Great Lakes. Cooler than normal temps in Miami.
Cold weather across the prairie. Slow sales, a nervous stock market and talk on the Mayan Calendar.
Note that is not the Dade County Courthouse where the buzzards are returning to take up their posts as I type this.
When you see a Turkey Hawk in South Florida.. you know Winter has arrived and so will the other snow birds.
Keep watching.. I'll be here... at least until the Mayan Calendar ends and probably way after that :)
Ps... Yes Virginia.. the Egyptian Mayan theme was big in the 20s when the Miami and LA courthouse were built.
A Mayan theme neighborhood in Miami out near the Tamiami Trail never got off the ground, too little too late for
Mirador as they were slow to get in on the boom before the bust occurred.
And, oh... yes there was a small quake in Texas last night! See...Twitter is never wrong ;)
