“You get 90 days! You get 90 days!! YOU get 90 days!!!”
-Oprah informing members of her excited audience they’ve just received a CE deadline extension
90 days. The Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS) announced that due to Hurricane Ian it’s giving automatic 90-day CE compliance extensions to all licensees with a deadline in September, October, November or December. If your compliance deadline falls within these months you should see the extension in your DFS MyProfile account which you can access here.
Free flood resource. Last Friday we emailed a video of famous Florida flood insurance guru David Thompson discussing a variety of issues stemming from horrible Hurricane Ian. We think you’ll find this info useful and encourage you to share it with others.
On tap this week: Law & Ethics Update Webinars for P&C and L&H licensees this Saturday. I could go on but your attention span is dropping faster than the overnight temps in North Florida this week (the 30s? what the #^&*?!) so here is the highlight:

THE “F5” (FASCINATING FACTOID FOR FANATICAL FLORIDIANS) –
It’s January 19, 1977 and you wake up shivering in your Miami home. As you walk to the closet to fetch an extra blanket you catch a glimpse of something strange happening to your yard. “No,” you say to yourself. You say it again but aloud this time. “Impossible!” You’re shouting now. You take a sniff of your water glass to ensure it’s actually water you’ve been drinking and not something stronger!
Reality begins to settle in and you’re flabbergasted. “Well I’ll be darned” you think as you hear what sounds like the neighborhood kids squealing with joy.
It’s snowing. In Miami.
According to the National Weather Service this was the first recorded snowfall in South Florida history and many affected areas haven’t seen a flake since.
WIN A LEGENDARY FISCE T-SHIRT! If you lived in southeast Florida (specifically, tri-county) at the time, experienced this snowfall AND have a photo to prove it, email the photo to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. My favorite gets a t-shirt!
