Florida has had a litany of freezes since 1899, one of the worst occurring just 5 years after this ad was printed, in 1917. After that the weather patterns warmed enough that they did not get hit with a serious freeze again until 1934, after which the freeze warning service was started to give growers time to secure their crops in the event of a long duration freeze. Today Florida has recovered from the devastating freezes of the 1980's and has enjoyed a rather long spell of good weather. One never knows when the next freeze is lurking around the corner though... Global Warming notwithstanding.
