Came to St. Augustine for Xmas. Should be about 75 tomorrow.

Went down to the beach today and spotted a gopher tortoise burrow, and luckily a juvenile occupant was warming his backside. He eventually heard me and darted back inside. He was gone in a blink. Hoping to spot another on this trip.

The photo is a bit blurry since the camera focused on the grass:

Suppose to hit 70 here and be the warmest Christmas we've had in a while.

We have been in the low 30's with heavy rain all day...it's supposed to start snowing around midnight tonight and continue until next Wednesday. My house is full of animals and food...I'm ready....

Its been dismal here for over a week now, and looks to continue. Daytime highs only reaching the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s. We've hit freezing a couple of times already. We usually have a few days like this once in a while over winter as our winter rain storms blow through, but this has been dragging on for far too long. Its making me miserable. Definitely NOT good tortoise weather.

Terribly cold weather here in Jordan. Temperature dropped to only four degrees C (about 39 degrees Fahrenheit), with lots of rain. It even snowed in some parts of the Kingdom.
