Its true -- you are not dreaming. For the first time in 28 years, snow fell on the streets of Tallahassee, Florida during rush hour Wednesday morning.
The conditions are cold enough for the snow to form, but videos show it quickly melting as it hits the ground. The National Weather Service measured 0.1 of snow/sleet on their rooftop.
Roughly 50 miles of Interstate 10 have been closed in Tallahassee due to snow an ice. In lieu of the traditional salt, the unusual weather has prompted Florida Highway Patrol to lay down sand to melt the ice, according to ABC News Victor Oquendo.
Tallahassee Police @TallyPD Its snowing in Tallahassee! As exciting as this is, please use extreme caution if you are driving & dont expose yourself to the cold for too long without proper gear. #SunshineState #SnowDay #WinterIsHere 8:10 AM - Jan 3, 2018

Snowfall is unlikely in Orlando, but could be possible in Central Floridas most northern regions, according to Channel 9 Eyewitness News.
My sister in law cancelled all morning classes at her fitness center there. Down south, just a tad of snow and they go crazy.
Yes, call Uncle Al to fire up his scam to save Florida...
More media stupidity. Sand does nothing to lower the freezing point of water. It's merely for traction.
And why is the Highway Patrol and not the DOT in charge?
Thanks. That’s what I thought.
The Wall is down and the dead are coming. Winter is here.
But this doesn’t count like when they had some flooding. Hmm
I have a basic condition for accepting global warming. It should actually get warmer.
It snowed in Pensacola a few weeks ago when Trump was there.
Recently moved back to the Lowcountry for the warm climate;) LOL!
The DOT has closed all the bridges to autos & trucks. Lots of brave pedestrians walking!!!!
I’ll just wait for Spring before venturing out.
When I lived in Florida, we had central A/C. If it got cold enough to need heat, there was a way of heating by turning on a coil in the A/C unit, which would then blow warm air.
Because it was used so seldom, a years worth of dust(which is mostly made up of shed skin cells), hair, and other nasties would build up on the coil, and when turned on, smelled so bad that one was better off c-c-cold!
Now I live in the Boston Area, and praying my furnace will hold on!
Yesterday it snowed in Tennessee
I heard it also snowed in Tallahassee
But not a flake fell on little ol’ me,
‘Cause I was in shu shu shu,
shu shu shu,
shu shu shu shu shu shu, Sugartown.
Small rewrite of an old Nancy Sinatra “hit”.
When I was teen (late 70’s) living about an hour south of Orlando, Florida we had a dusting to 1” snow fall. The weather patterns are cycling back to what they were.
Good thing Im finding obsidian on the jobsite in Napa. Now to get my dentist to use his CNC crown machine to start cranking out ~ .300 rounds out of it that I can dip for a .008 coating of lead that will engage the rifling...
And everything was slowed waaaaay down this morning. Schools were closed, FSU cancelled classes and I-10 was shut down in stretches.
My biggest concern is the dramatic lowering of the oceans which will surely follow this Global Cooling. My computer model indicates a 100 foot decrease in worldwide ocean depth in the next 10 years.
Ice will build in the North and South, England will be once again be joined to France, Alaska will again join to Russia. The Panama Canal will be on dry land. Ocean circulation patterns will be disrupted.
We will all die.
Any FReepers reporting weather, from Lake City, FL?
The songwriter, Lee Hazlewood elaborated on the song:
I was in a folk club in LA which had two levels. I could see these kids lining up sugar cubes and they had an eye-dropper and were putting something on them. I wasnt a doper so I didnt know what it was but I asked them. It was LSD and one of the kids said, ‘You know, its kinda Sugar Town.’ Nancy knew what the song was about because I told her, but luckily Reprise didnt.
He explained, “You had to make the lyric dingy enough where the kids knew what you were talking about and they did. Double entendre. But not much more if you wanted to get it played on the radio. We used to have lots of trouble with lyrics, but I think its fun to keep it hidden a little bit.”
“It was hard to put any other songs with ‘Sugar Town’,” Nancy remembers. “It was basically about LSD, but was not publicized as that. It was Lee’s ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’. It went against my image.”
It’s funny how the “climate change experts” were saying a few years back how our children would never be seeing snow again.
