Naples FL Blog

Okay, I admit it.  After 13 years of living in the Sunshine State I have turned into a wuss when it comes to cold weather.  Today when I went out to gas up my car for my showing tomorrow, my hands turned into ice touching the metal handle of the gas nozzle.  It was only in the mid 50's!  I can remember pumping gas for myself up in Chicagoland freezing at the pump wearing gloves and here I was shivering in 50 degree weather.

Those of you who live up North will most likely chuckle at the thought of me wearing socks and sweats around the house today.  I ran outside to snap these photos around my subdivision so you can see how Florida takes a cold snap seriously.  Naples has a freeze watch in effect tonight.

Protecting flowers from the cold in Naples, FL

L'Ambiance in Pelican Bay readys itself for some cold weather!

Flowers keeping warm in Naples FL

Naples' overnight low could go to 28 degrees tonight inland.  The tomato and citrus growers are concerned about their crops and rightfully so.  I am sure they have been working all day to protect their crops.  No one wants to see these growers hurt by a frost. is predicting a high of 39 degrees at 9:00 AM tomorrow morning.  I will have to search through my closet for my winter coat and gloves so I will be prepared to show tomorrow at 9:30 AM.  I can not remember the last time I wore a winter coat in Naples let alone close toed shoes!  The question I face right now is will I be able to fit into any of my closed toes shoes and do any of my dress socks still have elastic that will actually hold my socks up?

Tonight will be the first time in a long time that we will turn on our heat.  Naples' average high temperature this time of year is 75 degrees.  This cold snap has reminded me of how glad I am that I live in Naples.  I have missed my family, friends, and certain restaurants in Chicago while living in Naples.  I have NOT missed cold weather!
