In the interests of inclusion, the unseasonably cold temperatures that hit the east coast last week weren’t about to leave Floridians out.

But never fear, Floridians, it’s about to get back to normal.
If you're over the cold, look ahead to next week! We are back in the low to mid 70s 🙂 Doesn't take long in Florida! pic.twitter.com/hITUzbwAor
