But it's November, little more than a month away from winter, and temperatures are pushing the high 80s.
The average high temperature for early November is 77 degrees, with a normal low of 55 degrees. Wednesday's low temperature was 73 degrees, putting Gainesville at 18 degrees above the normal low.
An area of low pressure over the western Atlantic Ocean is to blame for the unseasonably warm, humid air, said Andrew Shashy, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.
"That's brought most of the winds out of the south and southeast, helping to bring up warmer air," he said.
There is some relief in sight.

A self-guided boardwalk at Blue Spring State Park has a dual purpose. It provides an excellent land-based platform for watching manatees swim, sleep and rest while the younger calves cavort and play; these prehistoric throwbacks are fascinating to watch.
The boardwalk also takes visitors through a lush hammock to the Blue Spring itself. The same pristine beauty enjoyed by Florida's earliest residents still can be seen today.
Manatee-watching begins after the first winter cold snap, usually in late December. It peaks in mid-February in an average year and tapers off by the end of March.

Nick Beams reviews Keith Windschuttle's The Fabrication of Aboriginal History An assault on historical truth Part 1
This connection between the writing of history and contemporary social problems is illustrated by the so-called "History Wars" that have been fought out in Australia during the past decade. They have now reached a new peak of intensity with the recent publication of The Fabrication of Aboriginal History
by Keith Windschuttle.
While the form of the increasingly heated debate is a conflict over the nature and significance of the impact of British colonialism on Australia's indigenous population, its content is about contemporary society.

McPherson Sentinel: News Column
A bright orange backpack, an occasionally scruffy beard and assorted T-shirts all identify the newest adventurer and teacher to Walk Across America.
Don Vermilyea, a native of West Virginia, began his walk on Feb. 2, 2002, in Tucson, Ariz.
He has two missions. One is to visit every Church of the Brethren that invites him, and the second, which he finds harder and harder, is to reach out to people and teach them of the gospels and Jesus.
Vermilyea has visited one-fifth of the United States so far, and in every state he walks through, he aspires to "plant a seed" and share God's love with every one who will listen.

"ON On shore Flo
by Marian Bell Olszewski
The beautiful warm days of a July summer are once again reminding us of how grand it is to live in Mukilteo. Of course there are exceptions when during the night, the low clouds from the Pacific Ocean creep on shore and the sun is hidden from sight until later in the day.
Many years ago there was a Seattle TV weatherman who was also a cartoonist. Nothing scientific about his forecasts. No double Doppler, no satellite images. Only a drawn caricature of a woman named "On Shore Flo" This drawing needed no extra words or images to inform us of the expected low clouds in the next morning sky.

Students who enjoy the outdoors might find their niche at the Outing Centre.
The center, located behind the Student Recreation Center, offers activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, spelunking, mountain hiking and backpacking.
These activities aren't only for the experienced outdoorsmen, however.
"These trips are for everyone," said Karen Rosenbloom, a senior art education major. "Whether they have gone before or not, experienced or inexperienced, we try to keep them at a moderate level," she said.
If someone experienced participates in one of the center's activities, the center will try to accommodate him or her.
Seattle Weekly: News: Did they get their man? by Rick Anderson
JUDY RIDGWAY is one of the few people left who thinks her husband isn't
responsible for the 49 Green
River murders. Judy, 57, and Gary Ridgway, who observed his third month and 53rd birthday in King County Jail last week, had what she calls a happy 17-year marriage. "He was the best thing that ever happened to me," she said the other day.
But on Friday, Nov. 30, 2001, King County Sheriff Dave Reichert announced that authorities had arrested "the" Green River killer.
Pitch a tent and defy the cold
The fair-weather campers are at home by the fireplace, the flurry of camping that goes with the major hunting seasons is finished and a lot of Oregon's public-owned campgrounds are buttoning up for the winter.
"The formal ones, the big ones" all are closed, said Ray Crist, public information officer for the Detroit district of Willamette National Forest. "We normally wouldn't be getting much use by now in our campgrounds anyway, as cold as it is."
There still are plenty of places to pitch a tent and build a campfire, and in a lot of cases fees have been waived until next spring.
Bhutan PM holding talks with ultras
Kokrajhar (Assam), Nov 05: Bhutanese Prime Minister
Lyonpo Jigme Yozer Thinley is camping at the Kalikhola area
of Bhutan near the Assam border holding talks with militant outfits in the area, official sources said here today.
Thinley is trying to persuade leaders of the Ulfa, NDFB and Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) to close their camps in that country, the sources said.
Bhutan's National Assembly had adopted a resolution in its 80th session urging the need for dialogue to convince the
militants to leave the Kingdom and retreat.

OK, it's in November, so we'll be surfing on
frozen chunks of ice, but surfing is surfing in
San Diego-and camp is camp, so it ought to
be totally sick.
So we get there, and it's all good, but it turns
out we're thinkin' more about surfing than
camping. I mean, the waves are what we're
here for, and camping is like, you know, just
for sleeping. Like, how tough can it be? We're
all waxin' our boards on the beach, and then
they sorta dump these bags of tents and stuff
in front of us and say, "Dudes, go set up your
Set up your tents. That's cool. No
sweat. Set up your tents. We can do that.

After three different trials, the testimony of several witnesses, and numerous objections, speeches, commands from the judge - plus a lunch break - District Court Judge Frank Rothschild Wednesday found Lloyd "Ikaika" Pratt guilty of two counts of contempt of court and two counts of state camping violations.
Pratt, who prefers to be called by his Hawaiian name, "Ikaika," is scheduled to be sentenced on January 14. The sentences imposed for the four petty misdemeanor charges can be up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine for each charge.
Straight Shooting : Winter-time camping has plenty to offer in the Natural State
Thursday, November 6, 2003
The calendar says it’s November, but based on the recent weather, you have to wonder. With temperatures in the high 70s earlier this week, it’s hard to accept the fact that winter is here. It just seems like fall is refusing to release its grip on northwest Arkansas. But hey, who’s complaining?
While November to many means the end of the fishing season and the start of the traditional hunting year, there are a few who simply refuse to give up on fall activities. While many of our local campgrounds called it quits for the season on Oct.
