Days of winter

While some may argue …

That south Florida doesn’t have a winter.

History of cold days in Naples Florida

According to the leading authority on the subject,

On average, Naples averages 18 of those per winter.

This year we’re at 20 for the year (and still counting).

As for those sub-70° days counting as a season? Winsberg also points out that those cold days rarely last. “Here today, gone tomorrow,” as he describes them. So yes, call it winter, and have a scarf handy when they occur, but don’t call it a season.
