The freezing temperature in Southern California can damage the fruits grown in the orchards such as oranges, avocados and strawberries.

Farmers use wind machine and spraying water to save the ripening fruits from frozen.

The icicles caused by the frozen water are very beautiful. (Please click here for photos of beautiful icicles on ripening strawberries and oranges during a cold snap in Florida in early January 2010.)

Freezing Weather In Florida

It is freezing in Florida.

Usually winter in Florida is not very cold.

There are a lot of strawberries and oranges grown in Florida.

The cold temperature can destroy the oranges and strawberries.

Farmers have to spray water on the plants to save them from the cold temperature.

The water froze on the plants and protect them.

The frozen water is called icicle.

Icicle on plants are very beautiful.

Bitter cold to linger across U.S. through weekend

oO

It is freezing in U.S.A. now.

It must be very, very ,very, very cold.

I read in CNN that it may get colder later.

The wind is very, very, very, very cold too.

In some places in U.S.A. you’ll get frozen if you play out side.

So you can’t make snowman in the garden.

There are lots and lots and lots and lots of snow.

But maybe there is no snowman 🙂

It is freezing
It is freezing

There is lots of snow in Ohio too.

I don’t want to go to  Uncle Arif’s house now  because it is freezing.

I hope Uncle Arif is not frozen in the snow.

I think  everybody’s car is frozen in the snow because it is very, very, very cold.
