Terribly cold here in Jordan, too. Only 3 degrees C (37.4 degrees F) during the day. Temperature is to drop to only -1 degrees C at night (30.2 degrees F)
Oli is keeping me extremely worried.

I'm beginning to think that our friend Oli will outlive us all.
Stay warm, Gillian

It's going to be a harsh Winter
lol , you better buy a jacket ....... i'm looking at our 10 day forecast , i see 10, 3, 20, 10, 7, 3, 18, 19, 19, 24 .......... the next 4 weeks is the worst of winter..... it's why when you asked about heating a pond my reply did not involve electricity ..... we had 15" of snow the other day , another not florida problem , but without a cover that 15" of snow going in those ponds with the temps we are getting freezes them pretty quickly and pretty thick ......... 20 right now , and gray for the last 3-4 days, the pond enclosure was 34 when i was just out there .....

27 and full sun over the weekend, the enclosure got to 60 ...... the ground here is frozen , it keeps the ponds pretty cold , once in awhile one of these guys comes up and figures out it's warmer out the water and comes out until it's not .....
