How Cold Was It?

You'd be surprised how cold it can get down here. Mostly cause houses don't have a little thing called "insulation".

Trying to close swollen windows with gusting cold winds can be an exercise in madness which as I found out can be easily relieved by beer and a outdoor propane flame heater placed in the living room.

Exactly how cold was it?

Cold enough that iguanas were falling out of trees in a comatose state. I didn't get to see this personally happen, but felt like I experienced it when I went to the DMV this week trying to get a replacement drivers license.

Seeing your breath in the air was a freakish occurrence everyday.

Locals looked homeless. Two weeks of just trying to keep warm and you really don't care at some point what looks good with the one sweater you own.

Pythons were laying out on the highways trying to get some warmth.

Fish were going belly up.

Most of all after the cold went, you're just so damn grateful not to live it in anymore. Don't know how I used to be cooped up for 6 months vs the two weeks that just happened. Hellooooooooo Sun!
