Florida's sentinel chicken?

Is Tallahassee Florida's sentinel chicken?

When it comes to the arrival of cool weather -- yes.

Do you see the recent plunge
in Tallahassee's nighttime low?

While Naples is mired in the dog days of its never ending summer, Tallahasee got its first dose of "cooler" air last week. Can you see in the animated graph above the dive in Tallahasee's nighttime low temperature -- Brrrr! -- into the fifties.  In comparison, nighttime lows a few hundred miles south in Naples are hovering in the high seventies.

The good news is that the sentinel chicken just tested positive for a mild strain of the fall.

For those of you from our state's capitol, my apologies for this analogy.

Looks like our first frost of the season the next two mornings.
