Florida Winter Arrived Last Week

How do you mark the advent of Winter where you live? Seasons come and go. Growing up in Pennsylvania, you knew.

In Central Florida, it’s much more subtle. People grow up here, never seeing snow or a frozen pond. But with careful consideration, there are clues that unmistakably say, “It’s time“.

Last Friday, we heard the first Robin Red Breast chirping. Robins aren’t native to Florida. They come here for the winter.

In an effort to pass on “wisdom” to our son, unique home-made traditions, like the “1st Robin of the season” are a great place to start.

You can observe a lot by watching. – Yogi Berra
