Floridians can handle pretty much all sorts of weather except freezing temperatures and bitterly cold wind. Freezing rain affecting much of the heart of Florida this morning and wind chills in the 20s and 30s all day the cold sticking around through Sunday.  So make sure you are prepared by keeping yourself warm first. It's easier to change your body temperature than room temperature, not to mention more eco-friendly. Instead of turning up the heat, put on another layer of clothing. We lose about 10% of our body heat through our head, so make sure you are wearing a hat when outdoors. Even a hat inside will keep you toasty. Keep those celling fans on! Warm air rises to the ceiling. Run your fan on its lowest setting in a clockwise direction to push the warm air back down to where you can feel it. Grab a pool noodle and use it to stop heat escaping from under your door.  Cut it in half lengthwise and maneuver it so the halves straddle the bottom of your door. Layer your bedding with the thinnest and densest blankets on top. Fluffy blankets should be closer to your skin. Thin, dense blankets should be on top to prevent convective heat loss.
