You May Pay More for A Bouquet of Roses This Valentines Day

Valentine's Day could be a bit more expensive this year not because of flower costs, but rather a series of cold snaps hit Florida's "Fern Belt".

Florida is one of the major producers of those ferns that are folded into rose bouquets that are so popular this Febuary 14th.

Early Wednesday morning, ferns froze in the fields as the temperatures dropped into the teens in the growing belt. Fern fields were covered in ice, and some venters say the season is dead becuase of the massive losses so far.

While it is not unusual for cold snaps during the winter months, this seasons' grip has affected almost all of Florida.
