Each December and January…sometimes into February, we get a few cold fronts in Belize. The wind shifts – blowing in from the north – and the humidity plummets (from the usual 90+%). It feels legitimately cold though the temperature rarely goes below the high 60s.
Belize hasn’t embraced the dramatic language of our northern AccuWeather neighbors – Arctic Blast, Polar Vortex…yet.
The cold front blew in Monday with grey skies and 20mph winds and even the street dogs were cold – all curled up in potlicker balls. This cutie, who always hangs out in front of the Hol Chan Office, was actually wearing a t-shirt.
I almost got hit by a golf cart taking his pic. Here are some pictures of my week.
And the forecast for the next week. It looks like the next cold front is coming SOON – Saturday to be exact.
The north wind and the very low tide have the beaches looking GOOD.
And then some photos from the camp – Cayo Frances Farm & Fly – where I spent a bitter cold night 🙂
Plums are coming (these are my favorite) – not ready yet. But in a week or so.
And then the Ginger Mosquit-o-Meter. Ginger lays on these stairs in the morning and is a SPOT ON gauge for the bugs at the camp.

And this! Stickers coming soon!
