Meanwhile, it has been running in the 48 to 62 degree F range near Philadelphia. I'm sure the gang in the pool/pond heard the New Year's eve celebrations and must know it is January, but this weather must have them all confused!

Global Warming??? Nah.... Mr. Bush says "No!"

thanks Oliver :D i've never thought it could be that warm in Phil during winter lol

Thankfully, it's a bit warmer today. Isn't it amazing the fish can survive those cold temps?

yeah, it is pretty neat isnt it ? lol. fish are amazing creatures :heart Have been around your area in FL Lolafish, but the temps here been really strange, 60-70 in morning, but teens at night :unsure:

Ahh it was 8 degree F..it was cold..

nice pics those are some hardy fish :D

thanks Alex, that is cold :krazy::D

Sorry to break it to you, Jewels, but I haven't seen any snow in GA. I did hear however today that there were a few snow flakes in Brevard county (Cocoa Beach and such). Maybe further up north in GA - down here people have been waiting for snow for years now. :D

Global Warming??? Nah.... Mr. Bush says "No!"

Oh, of course, Mr. Bush is always right.... :tomuch:

An, your pond looked beautiful, with all those fish swimming underneath. My wakin pond looked like that one day last winter, for about half an hour, before all the ice broke and disappeared. Looks so cool!

:rofl You are sooooooooo happy to blame everything on "global warming" huh? :rofl

IT has been unseasonably cold then warm then cold and now warm again. Such are the winds of change - with the next big storm coming in the Pacific, we will get the outflow in about a week. But then, this happens nearly every year - at one time or another. It has for over 60 years in my personal experience - and will continue.

(ACtually - it is my personal opinion that it is the politicians and their hot air. First their hot air heats things up in Iowa - causing a great warming event. Now, with them going to New Hampshire, the hot air will cause an great up-draft there, pulling the cold air east with it and flooding Illinois in frigid temps once again. ;) )

Oh I see you have discovered the secret to global warming ;)
