It's beginning to look a lot more like Florida

The scene on Cocoa Beach during a stop with my motorcycle around sunset Friday night, the mildest evening so far this year.

Finally, spring has sprung in Florida. After week upon week of horrendous cold - highs no higher than 70 degrees on many days, preventing the snowbirds from spreading their wings and the spring break tourists from, well, doing whatever they do - the mercury hit 80 degrees Friday. It's perfect motorcycling weather, though with the warmer temperatures, the insects are back in force. But there's nothing like a large dragonfly hitting you in the nasal bridge at 70 mph to usher in the season.

It's only a matter of time before the weather starts becoming more active, which indubitably means more storm photographs.
