Frozen Orange Juice anyone?????

This is what the inside of the our Explorer said. ICE! Thank God there is no snow to shovel, but it is FREEZING here in Florida. Usually we get a day or two of this weather and we tolerate it. But 3 weeks???!!!! Come on now, something needs to give. Yesterday we had snow flurries and sleet. Can you imagine? We were not in Winter Haven when that happened so we have no pictures. But today it was 27 degrees when I went to work and it was 37 when I got home. Does that sound like sunny Florida? Sunny, maybe, but definitely not Florida weather.
This is the roof and hood of Liz's car in the yard this morning. Ice and thick frost. Could be snow.
9:00 am and icicles on the orange trees.
Not even the biggest icicle but it's pretty big. Yes that's my hand holding it. I picked it off the orange tree.Check out the ice on the ground around the small orange trees. This was about 11:00 am.
1:30 in the afternoon. The poor trees are still frozen. So what's all this hype about Global Warming? Someone refresh my memory, lol.

Oh my that must be disastrous for the Florida citrus crops! Thankfully we are starting to thaw.

Wow ... look at that ice!

It's too funny your car says "ice" ... didn't know that was a setting ... lol.

I know it's unbearable in Florida right now. Bett is freezing too! I hope you guys get some sunshine and warmer weather very soon!

BTW it was 12 degrees here when I woke up this morning.

BBBrrrrrrr 12 degrees. I would die if it got that cold here, lol. A little warmer today and then hopefully the temps are supposed to climb the rest of the week.

Goodness, it's no wonder the prices of oranges have gone up! lol That certainly isn't typical Florida weather for sure, hopefully Mother Nature has had her fun and will now return you to sun and WARMTH!! xoxo

I sure hate to see the price of our fruit and juice go up. I know a friend said they had snow in Jacksonville.
Stay warm dear.
