FTA...A 77-year-old man, his 72-year-old wife and their 41-year-old daughter were treated by St. Petersburg Fire Rescue paramedics, then taken to St. Petersburg General Hospital.


You would think that people that age would know better than to use a charcoal grill inside. Of course, this happened in Florida, so maybe that explains their ignorance.

I understand that if you live in St Pete, you may not want to spend the money on a heater because of those 5 days a year it may get below freezing at night. There is this invention called a "blanket". It won't kill you, unless your a tard.

Oh, never mind, these people are tards. They just need to move down to Miami, where 60 F is blindingly cold.

I do believe that the parents won't be havin' more kids, and it's doubtful the 41-year-old will be squeezing out kids, either.

...I hope.

I bet their house either didn't have working heat, or the weather proofing was so bad it couldn't keep up.

It's currently 54 degrees inside my house.


Get a pair of slippers, wear a light jacket, and you'll be fine.

They must have had some good insulation in their home. Most Florida style homes (the older ones) are built to let air in.

I live in one..and it has stupid louvered windows. (Glass slats).

When the wind blows, you feel it inside. Great for summer, sucks for winter. (Power bill in summer..about 80 bucks..last month 250 even with sealing the damn things with plastic).

Should have sat in the car, run the heat, in the garage, with the door cracked. With cat converters it's safer than what they did. Actually, the kid in Home Alone did a better job of taking care of himself then they did. Those people are on the level of drunk freshmen in the dorm, "turn on the grill..."

House did not burn. Carbon monoxide poisoning. Using a charcoal grill indoors is a popular suicide method in Japan. It wont get your family fined for delaying the train.

I live just up the road from Miami and it's in the thirties down here. Snowing in these parts for the first time in thirty-some years.

I'm loving every minute of it. Growing up in Brooklyn and spending two summers in the Iraq will do that to you.

Or get a space heater. You can get relatively inexpensive ones. If they don't sell them in FL, well, that's what the internet is for. Blankets are fine but my nose and ears get painfully cold before the rest of me, and I kind of need my nose uncovered to breathe.

Of course, I live in the Midwest, so that 'so cold a blanket won't help unless I'm covering myself completely and not getting out of bed' point for me is somewhere around the single digits, probably, not 10-32 F.

Water doesn't freeze at 47 F.

You want freezing, the outdoor dog water bowl had to be brought inside because ever ounce of water in it froze solid (it's a big bowl, there are 4 large breeds in the house).

You want extremely cold, go to South Dakota, where it's cold enough that you can throw a pot of boiling water out a second story window and it will be ice before it hits the ground.

At 47F, it's merely chilly outside. Miami locals start saying it's really cold outside when it gets below 60 F and begin piling on the jackets. Even people who live in Central Florida look at them like they're tards for doing that. God forbid their high is in the 60s, they freak.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: If they don't sell them in FL, well, that's what the internet is for.

It usually doesn't get cold enough in Florida to warrant the use of ANY sort of heater, especially south of Lake O.

Expect several more stories like this over the next few weeks as people not familiar with the concept of "cold" try warming themselves by running space heaters and car engines indoors.

Long pants and a t-shirt for me. Light jacket if it's windy, but otherwise I like this winter weather.

I grew up in Central FL. For the most part, that's true. You don't need central heating, but if you don't have it, you will own a heater just in case. A handful of nights it might get cold enough to warrant it's use.

I lived there during the late eighties hard freezes (86, 89), when the locals turned on their sprinklers to insulate the trees using ice. Got out of there and moved to a place where the plants didn't die when temps got below freezing.

Meh, I just felt like making the obvious joke.

Anyway, here is what they have to say about Fark's Favorite State, and here's their take on my neck of the woods:

Temp: 37 °F / Humidity: 59% / Pressure: 30.38 in (Steady) / Conditions: Clear / Wind: NW at 9 mph / Updated at: 1:53 AM EST

I've honestly never used the site before tonight, and I gotta agree - the ease of use is amazing!

Anyone who's ever served in the Army knows what a TM is. WU's user friendliness for end users is the exact opposite of a 30&P TM.

It has been legitimately cold in Florida for the past week, it's below freezing once the sun goes down for most of the last week, and we've actually had snow and sleet the other day.

That said, those people are dumbasses who have no excuse not to know better. Floridians may not know cold weather, but we do know hurricanes and one of the cardinal rules with hurricanes is knowing how to avoid giving yourself carbon monoxide poisoning. If they hadn't poisoned themselves now, they'd have poisoned themselves by trying to barbecue inside in the middle of a hurricane.
