Dudes, look:

My wife's car








My kid's toys in the back yard




That's no supposed to happen. This is Central Florida for God's sake! Where all the non-cold-resistant Puertoricans migrate! I've never been so effing cold.

That's frost on the car, google Arkansas ice storm for pictures of real ice. You're right though that it is abnormally cool down there.

If is supposed to be liquid, but is solid, it's ICE in my book.

We'll forgive the Florida native for getting worked up about some frost and an 1/8" sheet on top of the bucket. (I say this as a Dallas, Tx native... )

We got a light dusting this morning in Tampa. I'm more pissed about the nice tropical landscaping I planted last summer. They don't look so good.

Local news now discuss the possibility that the Orange crops might go to waste. That's a new one for me, don't they froze orange juice anyways?

you can't use frozen oranges to make concentrate. They won't make it

They will rot before anything can be done. A freeze is a loss for citrus groves.

You are correct. I've been in FL for only 3 years. Before this, I grew up in the Caribbean @ 80-90 degrees all year round. Cold weather is something I've only seen in movies.
