Northward Migration Begins

Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, FL

The northward migration has begun.  For the past week or so, a half dozen boats per day are departing Book Key Harbor to head north.  

Are they too soon?  Consider the evidence of this picture.  My son John in upstate NY sent it Monday morning.  He got 10 inches.  Jenny in Vermont got 22 inches, and her truck was stuck in the driveway.  Jeez.

The answer is no, not too early. Those boats departing now are planning on taking 2-3 months to complete their journey. By time they arrive, it should be nice and warm up there.  Once before we had a question asking why we didn't choose the fastest possible method to migrate north or south. The answer is implicit in the weather.

  1. Am I mistaken or have you been more stationary than last year? You did your transit through the everglades or that that just because of the repair?
