ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A cold snap in Florida is different than in other places. We put on heavy coats when it’s 50 degrees.

No blizzard conditions here in the Sunshine State, but we have our issues as well. For example, in South Florida Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach there are iguanas falling out of trees.

The National Weather Service said Sunday it’s all going to be fine. The low temperatures in the 30s are quite rare in Florida, and winter crops suffered no major damage.

The iguanas are another matter. When it gets cold they go into a sort of suspended animation mode and fall out of trees.
