But I found these brave little winter soldiers. True, these hibiscus blooms couldn't quite manage to open the entire way, but they gave it a try.
And just as I gave up any hope of getting a glimpse of the sun and was going back in the house, I noticed a lone brave Floridian walking a ways down the street. I zoomed in with my camera and caught a perfect example of proper Florida winter walking attire.
And as god is my witness, the very second after I took that last shot, the old guy took off jogging- I swear- he jogged! If only I'd had my Flip with me.
