This has been a very mild winter, especially in comparison to the past two years. The water temps are much warmer as well. So why is this an issue this year? I could understand "cold shock" if we had sustained frigid temps like last winter to bring the water temps down quickly, but that hasn't happened.
Oh..and while you're at it, donate all of the coats you can to the poor children and elderly so they can stay warm as well. They need help just like the turtles.
