Here in South Florida, the cold snap shattered a decades-old record!
The freezing temperatures are still lingering on in South Florida, and do you believe it...... with snow flurries spotted around Orlando and a record low set for Miami. The News showed snow on top of cars and children trying to make snowballs. Warmer weather is coming our way this weekend.
Some citrus groves in northern Florida, sustained substantial damage, as temperatures were in the teens in some parts of northern Florida. Citrus trees rarely survive when exposed to temperatures in the mid-20s or below longer than four hours.
Florida's citrus industry is worth $9.3 billion and produces 75 percent of the nation's orange crop. Well, be ready to see the price of oranges to go up.
Floridians might have had enough of Mother Nature, but she hasn't had enough of Florida!
Look at the ice forming on the trees. Yikes, I've been living in Florida close to 21 years now and I have never seen this before.
The heat has been on daily. I've had on several pairs of socks as my feet were freezing!
I had to check my car's manual to see how to turn on the heated seats which I've never used before! LOL Wow, it gets nice and toasty.........Didn't think I would never use those features.
I just don't understand one thing???????? I've never felt this cold inside the house living up in New England for most of my life. Heat is heat....right? Why would I still feel so cold in the house? I don't understand it.
Well, I got the opportunity to take out my winter wardrobe that I reserve for my trips up north.
Stay warm folks!
