Officially cold

It's official. Even Florida has been blasted with this damned cold. The citrus crop is now officially affected. So depressing. I bought lovely lemons just a week ago. The color so refreshing. Now I wish I'd bought more.
What does the rushing water of a Colorado stream in summer have to do with the cold? Well. In July the water in a Colorado spring is ice cold. So cold you gasp when you step into it and your feet become numb quickly. After spending two months sweating in the Southern US it feels oh-so-good and refreshing. It's cold because the winter snow high up in the mountains is slowly melting releasing the most, wonderful, clear and cool elixir of life. Personally I'm looking forward to the time when cold feels good again.
