Frosty


Last week offered us temps well below freezing for several nights in a row. 

 When that happens, the citrus farmers don't sleep. 
 
The hum of wind machines are heard all night and morning long.
 
 
A bit of cold make the fruit sweet, but too much damages the texture of the fruit and can severely damage the tree itself. 
 
 
Thankfully, it appears the farmers have dodged a bullet. 
 
 
 The frosty temps have just made things pretty in the mornings.

Very sparkly!
We have had a mild winter so far over here, but it's supposed to be bad tonight. We might even see a little snow.
