Winter on the Island can change a lot from year to year, from week to week, and even from day to day. All these pictures were taken in December in different years. Last week it was -9 and next week is supposed to be +9. On the island we'll tell you that 5 minutes or 5 miles makes a difference in the weather.
This was last year in my front yard... I thought I was going to lose my Palm trees. They were completely buried in snow for a couple of weeks... They made it back. The eucalyptus took a beating and had to be cut back severely to survive.
