As the Northern US gets beaten up by oblierating snow storms and chilling below zero temperatures, I should hold my tongue and be thankful to live in Gainesville, FL.  However, it is not all sun and fun as you might expect.  We have been contending with below freezing nights, getting in to the 20...
