I'ts Been Awhile

DeBary, FL.

39 deg. clear, NW wind @ 2 mph.

Forecast = Clear. High of 57F. Winds from the North at 10 to 15 mph.

It's been awhile since I last posted, so I thought I'd better let you know that I'm still here in DeBary and everything is fine.

Jim and Linda haven't been doing much. Oh, they've been doing things like grocery shopping, going out to eat once in awhile and other normal day to day things. The park has been pretty quiet since Christmas and some of the people in the park are already starting to take down decorations.

The weather has been pretty strange here this year. We have been having cold fronts that come through the area about every 3 or 4 days. It drops the temperatures down into the 30's at night with highs in the 50's or 60's. Then in between the cold fronts, it warms up, so that the temperature is in the mid to upper 70's, (Even getting into the 80's at times), before another front, (with rain and sometime storms),  comes through and drops the temperatures back down again.

A lot of people are getting colds and are blaming it on the wide temperature swings, but I don't know if that's what's causing it or not.

They're having a New Years Eve party over at the clubhouse Monday night but Jim and Linda aren't planing on going. They both prefer to just stay home and watch a movie on TV or something.

I don't know if I'll be posting again before the New Year, so I want to wish all of you a safe and Happy New Year. Please stay safe and watch out for all the crazy drivers out there if you're going to be traveling.

Did you know that the Roman emperor Julius Caesar officially declared January 1 to be a New Year in 46 B.C? Romans worshiped God Janus who had two faces, one looking forward and the other looking backward. The month of January was named after this Roman God and it gave an idea to the emperor to establish January as a gate to the New Year.
