Brrr! It's Cold Here in Sunny Florida
The cold front that pushed through Central Florida Saturday - raining out the ARCA race and Bud Shootout - has got us in its grip now.
Temperatures are predicted to dip below freezing tonight, with a stiff wind kicking in a chill factor. I know that doesn't seem like much to folks from parts north and west or Washington and the Northeast that just got dumped on by a big winter storm. But here in Daytona, it's not just local fans bundling up.
I was lucky enough to find a ski cap for sale here in the Fan Zone store. A bargain, originally $18 marked down to $5. It's looks so good that I almost picked up a few more, but there were folks waiting behind me who actually needed the hats.
The chill factor hasn't damped the fans' enthusiasm, though the wind is giving the drivers some fits on their qualifying laps.
At least we know the cold snap is temporary. By Thursday, we'll be back at 78 degrees. That's a good thing for me, too, I only brought a couple pairs of long pants. It's a struggle, but I'll soldier on.
