The Doldrums: This is a nautical weather term the was the demise of many early sailors. This means an large Ocean area where there is generally no wind and overcast showery skies sometimes for days and weeks at a time. In the days of the early explorers like Magellan and Columbus this was a feared phenomenon and was not understood. Many ships and their crews would come to a standstill with no wind. They would run out of food and water and would perish.......

Although I say we are in "doldrum like" conditions...Meteorologist later discovered the reason this occurs...and only in a specific area of the world....(not Florida)

More later....
