It's Adam E., bringing you three more reviews. We're experiencing a cold front here in the Miami area, and when I woke up this morning it was a crisp 46 degrees. That means the heat is going on and locals are busting out their hats, boots and scarves for the next three days, until it warms up again. How cold is it where you are?
Meanwhile, today's reviews are:
