BRRRRR!!! So was this January as cold as it felt? Absolutely! The average temperature range for Tampa in January, per Wikipedia, is 51.2 degrees for a low and 69.5 degrees for a high. Also, in an average year, there are 4 nights in January where the temperature dips below 40 degrees and 3 days where it passes 80 degrees. The average temperature range for this January was 48.1 degrees to 67.6 degrees. There were a whopping 9 nights below 40 degrees and daytime highs didn’t reach 80 degrees once. Although this data would not appear to support the theory that our planet is heating up, 2017 was the hottest year on record in Tampa. Go figure.
• Watch Your Clearance: During a sudden summer downpour, my friend rushed under a section of the old Sunshine Skyway Bridge (now a pier) but forgot to pull down the rods from his T-top holders. The sound of hopelessly scarred fiberglass and graphite scraping against concrete was far worse than fingernails on a chalkboard. Lesson: Check your clearance and don’t take chances with rods or antennas.
