Don't live in Florida, but I do remember the government was trying to 
erradicate some imported insect or disease (I can't remember which), 
and they were going into peoples yards in Florida and taking out 
their citrus trees that they've had for years.  Of course that could 
happen here in PA, with the plum pox going on.

Fluffy, my wife just recently talked to her 80 yr old parents who 
live near Erie, PA.  They had 3 feet of snow.
