I saw my neighbor's water feature yesterday, but it wasn't until this morning that I decided to take a picture of the ice. Tonight will be our third night of frost and that is not good. One of the largest tropical fish raising businesses is located right here. They have had significant fish kill. The tanks are tented with plastic, but the problem starts when the weather warms up and the fish develop diseases.
It is not known yet how much damage there has been to the citrus and strawberries, but you can be sure you will feel it in the marketplace soon.
Give us two weeks and things should be back to normal in Florida. Until then, stay home and stay warm. Even blogger friends in London and France are saying it is one of the coldest winters in 30 years. At least we have totally blue skies and sunshine. The Trout is even going golfing later this morning.
