    You and I think alike...those plants that didn't make it through the cold will just make more room for the new one's I find in the spring. lol In the meantime, stay warm everybody!

    I'm in South Palm Beach County and our low was 32 degrees. I brought in all 40ish of my orchids and filled the dining room table with them. They went back outside today as the temps are back up. I wonder how many times I will have to do this this winter. Last winter the plants spent about 3 weeks in the house.

    yes, the weather is changing. it went from sweltering hot and sticky humidity to almost freezing and constant rain in less than 3 hours! it doesnt help a sub-antarctic low is passing over us, and this does help the farmers stuck in the drought---4th year in a row!

    i find as the summers get warmer, the winters get cooler, and no, global warming is a myth. this is a natural cycle of the earths ecosystem and has caused many ice ages and mass extinctions in the past and happens over hundreds of thousands of years. lets hope its not our turn!

    Thumbs down It's Happened before ? NOT!

    Global Warming is not a myth as much as it is a factor in climate changes we are experiencing right now.

    Unlike changes of the past, most of which a result of some sort of natural catastrophic event, this one is a result of human catastrophic ignorance and attitude. We are creating situations behind what is happening globally and that is simple fact. Not a hypothesis for discussion, not opinion for the sake of something else, nor is it imagination gone wild. If we continue to ignore the realities now and fail to make changes needed, it is out turn this time, I fear.

    The longer people in denial drag their misinterpretation and misunderstanding out in defense of utter disregard for mother earth, the worse it will get & less likely it will be to resolve easily, if at all. All people are entitled to believe what they want to believe, but dynamics of our planet do not believe in anything. Earth simply put is matter & energies in unison. Earth's dynamic runs under totally predictable laws of physics & mathematics.

    That fact cannot by replaced by lame theories and wishful thinking by those who want to believe otherwise. Prove otherwise & I will listen, but unproven dialogue holds no information, just meaningless unsubstantiated verbiage. In fact it's very much unthinking to me. How many Ostriches do you suppose lost their lives while their heads were in the sand, my friend?

    As you see I feel very strongly about what we are doing to this Planet.
    How about the Pacific Gyre? Is it just another cosmic occurance also?

    Respectfully in opposition to it's happened before & it's another cyclic event.

    and yes, it is a cyclic event. sorry to disagree with you. nut evidince in ice core samples and even silt and rock samples do suggest, and sometimes overwhelmingly that it has happened many times before. in my opinion, we are heading for global COOLING, not global warming. HELLO NEXT ICEAGE!

    Oh, burr Jordan> Take that back! Come July when you are in winter and I am in summer, I may change my mind, but not when local temps for me are well below zero centigrade ( 9 degrees farenheit tonight).
