    Some of the coldest air in quite some time is heading down across this great country, even going to affect the deep south with very low temp's. While some chemicals and non-winterized spraying equipment will usually be fine in unheated buildings, will anybody be taking extra precautions for this serious cold blast?

    That cold air is coming the Florida also. We are predicting night time lows in the 40's. That is Long John weather for our thin blood.

    Please post some pictures of that Beautiful snow. We here in the south have never seen real live snow. I have heard it can be very dry and power like this time of year.

    Will the pics mentally prepare you to get ready for the cold while digging out the long johns?

    The problem here is the day time temperature is back up into the 70's. Stripping off the Long Johns in the middle of the working day can be a PITA. But remember our blood gets very used to our temperatures. We are wearing heavy winter clothes while the tourist are running around in bathing suits.
