Gainesville, FL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Over the citrus fields at the University of Florida. This morning the temps dipped just below freezing. The sun soon warmed things up and melted the icy cover. I managed to capture the freeze just after sunrise this morning.

I believe it's quite unique for Florida, these low temperatures.

They do that on purpose, Julie, spray water on the fruit trees, because the water in freezing releases just enough heat to keep the TREE from freezing. Seems counter-intuitive, but it does work. I did that once to try to protect a plum tree that was blossoming. However, my hose froze and broke, with the result that only one low branch got covered with ice. But, that branch bore fruit when none of the others did.
