Hot spring gets "hotter!"

It's hot out there ...
in more ways than one.

It's been a hot spring ...

Here's a temperature chart for Naples, Florida.  As you can see, it's been a very hot April, with both daytime highs and nighttime running 5 to 10 degrees higher than average.  Ironically, in order to cool things off we're waiting for the wet season to heat up in full form.

That's when the giant afternoon thunderheads form.

But gators  know how to keep cool.  (Can you see all three?)

They bring the rain that puts wildfires out ...
And sends gators out of the canals and back into the swamp.
