    It's the beginning of the end. Soon Fl will be a glacier and the north pole will be a big ocean.

    Its so cold that you guy's might be paying 6+ per gallon of oj for up to 3 years. Or even longer if these freezes have the same effect as the 89 freeze that resulted in billion in losses to both fruit and ornamental growers alike. And resulted in large numbers of growers selling out. Which then allows brazil to take another American market off shore. Let alone the fact that a large part of the plants you guy's use are started and sometimes finished right here. So the impact could travel that route as well. It's also cold enough to completly ruin resi and comercial landscapes still under warranty which could ruin many businesses in this economy. It's also cold enough to all but stop sod production and instalation. It's also cold enough to potentialy kill of an indangered species called the manatee. Your strawberry short cake, pine apples, and any other tropical fruit, yea it's cold enough to kill all that to.Then you got the millions in maint that just aint getting made due to it being cold enough

    CkLandscape makes it sound like the end of the world. It's cold everywhere. We have been below 20 for 3 weeks in a row. What can any of us do about it? ....nothing...
