Not the Usual Weather Forecast – Cloudy With a Chance of Iguanas

I live in Southwestern Oho and so far this winter I have little to complain about.  There has been little snow so far.  Although the last couple of days have stayed below freezing, I can’t complain about the temperatures so far this year.  I guess every area has its own unique issues to deal with.  But this evening I saw a forecast that I find quite unusual.

Miami, Florida is preparing for a “cold snap.”  Cold is a relative term what is considered cold in Miami is not cold in Ohio, but what is cold in Ohio is not cold in Chicago and what is cold in Chicago is not cold in Alaska.  However, this afternoon, the National Weather Service in Miami issued a forecast which included a rare advisory to be aware that, due to the cold temperatures, there may be iguanas falling out of trees. 

Lest you think I am making this up – here is a link to a story from a local Miami TV station: https://fox6now.com/2020/01/21/dont-be-surprised-national-weather-service-in-miami-warns-of-falling-iguanas-due-to-cold/

So, in the morning when you head out for the day you might have to take an umbrella; you might have to wrap up in a coat, hat, gloves; you might even have to shovel the drive or slide through snow on your way.  But, unless you live in Miami, at least you won’t have to worry about iguanas falling out of the trees and onto you head.
