Returning Winter – North East Florida

.

Sunset under returning winter.

All of the clouds blew out to sea within a few hours.  I was able to star-gaze by midnight.

Cold Front January 27, 2015

Laughter of Winter Wind

.
Beautiful Winter Wind
Blows, blows cold
.
She whirls here,
Gusts there
.
She sweeps winter trees
Clean of their dead
.
Wind’s wild hair
Streaming blue, silver,
A rainbow that whips clouds
Into frothing mad chaos
.
Black swirling skirts
Black flying cloak
Block sunlight
Now here, now miles away,
Strobe erratic light,
Days and nights
Flicker in a moment.
.
Wind sings,
Wailing and free
Whistling gales,
Exulting in her own freedom,
She ignores the frantic
Small beings,
Craving warmth and comfort,
Hiding beneath roofs,
And tented arms,
Or Cowering away in nests
And dug out burrows.
.
Her wild flailing hair
The drumming trees,
And staccato small trash
The stabbing icy wetness
The biting harsh cold
Invokes the laughter of
Winter Wind,
As she sings and dances.

January 5 and 6 Weather Change Photos

I TOOK THESE PHOTOS JANUARY 5, 2014 IN NASSAU COUNTY, FLORIDA. IT WAS A SUN-SHINY DAY WITH AN CLEAR BLUE SKY. ON THE 6TH THAT CHANGED.

THE NEXT DAY, I TOOK THESE PHOTOS, JANUARY 6, 2014, IN NASSAU COUNTY, FLORIDA AS AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT MOVED IN. THE TEMPERATURE DROPPED ALMOST 50 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT IN JUST A FEW HOURS. THERE WAS A HARD FREEZE IN THE LOW TEENS THAT NIGHT …. AS I FLEW NORTH, IN MORNING OF THE 7TH, THE TEMPERATURES BECAME WARMER.

December Sunset Facing Georgia to the West From Florida 2013

______________________________________________________________

Night is falling with a December Sun setting over the St. Mary’s River on the Florida – Georgia state line.  The river runs North here.  The water cannot be seen from our house due to the water oaks, live oaks,  cypress, magnolias, and hickories, and pines, mostly.  I am standing on the front steps to take these photos Though we have had light freezes ( only a few hours below freezing) yesterday was a balmy 76 F, and today was even warmer.

Will tomorrow night freeze again? Perhaps not, but I can’t guess about the next night.
