Wow, If I did that I wouldn't be able to wait 'til spring to flush out the lines

Turned on the heater and brought the temp up to 75. Going to go out first thing in the morning and turn the heat on again. Probably not a problem but I'll sleep better.

I just love Florida for a Winter Over away from the cold in NC.....
Next year its Arizona or Bust.........

Come to Texas next winter. San Antonio has some cold spells but they don't last long, and the Rio Grande Valley almost never freezes.

I agree Don! The RGV is usually warmer, and less expensive than FL. Harlengen, McAllen, or Brownsville is great for city life; for those who prefer less populated areas, just look at the map RV in the Rio Grande Valley
Talked to a cousin today, she said it would be 33* tonight. They hadn't been on Ft.Myers beach in a week it was so cold and windy.

Hi All,

I am living in my RV in Silver Springs Fla, and all though it' s cold here it is still better then 3 and blowing snow back in NW NJ!!!! On the real cold nights I put on my LP furnace which blows heat into basement! I also open gray valve, and let water in one sink run slowly! 3 winters and so far no freeze ups!! The other thing better about cold hear then in NJ, is it is for way shorter time! besides day's are sunny and in 50's or better! Back in NJ most winter days have at best 15 degrees between hi & low, most days your lucky to see a 5 degree change! Here we see a 20 - 40 degree temp change! Oh yeah I have been in heated pool & Hottub everyday since I got here Oct. 15th, something eles I would not be doing back in NJ!! So with that said Have a Great Day and Enjoy !!

Cold Weather in FL


According to the Spanish archives, in the early 1600's it got cold in FL. The St. Johns River froze over at the mouth of the river where the Spanish sailing ships could not come into the river. They report the river was frozen hard enough a man could walk across the river there and it is approximately a mile wide. The portion of the river I am speaking of is where the I95 bridge crosses the river. You all know the area. The Spanish archives are really interesting because they have things recorded in FL since the early 1500's. Gives insight the National weather service has no clue to. Most people in the USA would probably tell you it is impossible for that event to occur. Nice thing about the archives is they had no political or commercial reason to lie. They just wrote down what happened. They did not record a temperature because they did not have thermometers then. The mercury thermometer we all are familiar with did not become common in America until about the Civil War.

It will happen again if it happened before. Just hope it doesn't happen while ya'll are enjoying yourself in FL.

Just my two cents worth and isn't worth that to a lot of people.
