Prices for oranges and strawberries are going to get jacked up next season to cover the losses.
We are looking at some highs of 50's this week after all last week of the 20's and 30's for highs.

Yeah I read that it was cold even down in the Keys. Wife and I are heading down to the Naples area in a few to look at some houses and condos.

I have a place on Big Pine that I lease out as a vacation rental, unfortunately all the lease contracts are good through 2012. Just sent out letters in December that after that they wouldnt be renewed. Havent heard anything back yet on it and these have been basically the same people and their families since 1990. Definitely the best ROI I have ever made.

Kamikaze Iguanas :ninja: I love it!

Hey, maybe you could go round up iguanas and sell them to pet stores until the weather warms up. I remember as a kid if we were able to catch a nice black snake or something we would sell it to a local pet store. :thumbup:
I heard of a guy who was picking them up and putting them in his back seat. When they warmed up they started freaking out and he almost wrecked because they were crawling all over. Now that's some funny sh*t!!!!!

50 above zero: Floridians shiver uncontrollably. People are sunbathing in Duluth.

40 above zero: Import cars won't start. Minnesotans drive with the sunroof open.

32 above zero: Distilled water freezes. The water in Bemidji gets thicker.

20 above zero: Floridians don long johns, parkas and wool hats & mittens.
Minnesotans throw on a flannel shirt.

15 above zero: New York landlords finally turn on the heat. People in Minnesota
have one last cookout before it gets cold.

Zero: People in Miami all die. Minnesotans close the windows.

10 below zero: Californians fly away to Mexico. Minnesotans dig their winter
coats out of storage.

25 below zero: Hollywood disintegrates. Girl Scouts in Minnesota still selling
cookies door to door.

40 below zero: Washington, D.C. finally runs out of hot air. People in
Minnesota let their dogs sleep indoors.

100 below zero: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get upset
because the Mini-Van won't start.

People in Minnesota can be heard to say, "Cold 'nuff fer ya?"
