Record cold?

By: FloridaBorn, 1:05 PM GMT on October 22, 2011

Early this morning, the thermometer said 37 degrees. This is supposed to be North-central Florida, not Minnesota (where I lived for 2 years--so I know what Minnesota weather feels like). Did anyone else in the Marion/Putnam/Alachua county area find it to be colder than the forecast said?
