This winter has been the coldest one since I moved to Ocala in 2004. According the the tv weather man it was the coldest in Florida in 20 years. By cold I mean several frosts and a couple of light freezes. Day time temperatures in the high 50’s is freezing here. The grass which often stays green all winter is brown and dormant. Plants that generally survive in this zone look pretty much toasted.
The last week of February warmed up. We had several days in the 80’s. March is spring. The day time temps will be in the 80’s and nights in the 60’s. There will be little or no humidity until May. Spring which is a lot like summer up north is great here in Ocala.
