30 degrees last Night the Florida fish are dying.

We bounced all night again with winds 15 - 20 knots and now mid day they are blowing 20-25 - so for the second day in a row we go no where. the wind chill is in the 20's - our neighbors Carl and Laura jsut stopped by to see if we needed anything they are off to the movies - we'l stay hunkered down - have everything we need aboard. Don braved the cold, put a double tie on our mooring so we could rest easier and started the generator so we have an hour or so of computer time. We had a wonderful dinner here last night with Carl and Laura who appreciated the good food and cheer must most of all out heat ! -I'm off to curl up with a good book. :)

This cold - more than record breaking here in Florida is killing some of the marine life.  The cold sinks to the bottom in small lagoons, up in Vero in the anchorage Dick and Libby can see the bottom and it is littered with dead fish. Very sad state this environment of ours seems to be in.
