The Salt Life: Hey, Nation! We are freezing too! (by Sasha)

Here in Florida we have viewed countless accounts of the freezing weather throughout the nation–but there has been hardly a word from the national news media about how we here on the Suncoast of Florida are suffering.

So here is my corrective to that lack of news coverage: It’s like brutally cold here and we are struggling, bigley!

IMG_5109To begin, the temperature today ranged from the low 30s to a high of 54. That’s right, no fake news here, this is an actual photo of a thermometer in Sarasota, FL at 3:30 p.m. Horrifying, is it not?

At lunch time today, outdoor cafes were frigid and we had to eat…INDOORS! It was like so crowded!

 

 

 

People were seen wearing not only closed toed shoes, but egads–SOCKS! And women covered-up in woolen shawls! And STILL they were cold!

The world’s No. 1 Beach, Siesta Beach, was…EMPTY!!! Unheard of!siesta empty

Ignore that sunshine and blue sky, the pool was too CHILLY for swimming. Even Lido Beach closed their pool. Brrrrr!

There was a run on space heaters at Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Target! It was madness and survival of the fittest!

 

It reminded Karma of her days in Syracuse, NY, and Koda was glad to have his fur coat!

And in rare film footage, even Jack’s beloved Miata was seen tucked away in the garage with–HORRORS!–the top UP!

 

 

 

Keep us in your prayers, Nation. We survived Hurricane Irma, and we’ll use those skills to get through this as well.
