31 degrees and falling

It is currently 31 F with wind gust blowing at 25mph.  I am very cold.   I guess everyone should expect to be drinking frozen orange juice this year. 

 Wink

Actually, I shouldn't joke about the freeze, since the orange crop is very important to our citrus growers and, of course, the farmhands who pick the fruit.

Speaking of the cold, even in FL people need shelter from the weather and so do pets.  Although I'm not a big fan of keeping your animals outdoors anyway, make sure that you take them in on cold evenings.  If for some reason this isn't possible, straw, hay or blankets should be provided on your front porch or in the garage (if you have one) and a makeshift shelter with some boards is always another choice.  Remember, the ground is very cold and you wouldn't want to lie on it either.

You know they have outside heat lamps for animal houses too. My mother bought one for her animals. Mine, on the other hand, likes to tear everything up. We bought him an outdoor heating pad to lie down on. He tore it up like a rag doll. (He tears everything up, one of the reasons he stays outside. Which I don't understand. He was the easiest dog to house train I have ever had. But he started teething -well, you know what I mean--and I couldn't keep him inside anymore.)

Spy, did you try one of those crates they sell at Wal-Mart? There is nothing cruel about keeping a puppy in a cage while she is learning to behave. At least she'll be warm and also feel she is part of the family. 9 degrees is very cold.

the farmhands who pick the fruit.
I thought they were called agriculturist employees.
