It's so cold that ...

In South Florida Iguanas are falling out of trees and hitting people!

https://www.buzzfeed.com/mbvd/its-so...4b0#.xyoRv90vE

They are also popping up in peoples toilets but that's a whole other story: How do so many iguanas get in Florida toilet bowls?

We had one on our dock this morning but he finally thawed out.

It rained here, too. Pretty decent amount of rainfall, with hopefully a decent amount of snowfall in the mountains, that doesn't melt right away.

This used to happen to me when I lived in Canada. One day I went shopping on the way home from work and accidentally got distracted and left it all in the trunk overnight. The stuff in the cans and jars froze, expanded and made a hell of a mess.
