they look like they are struggleing with the cold weather

my first guess would be
Ganoderma lucidum

or "ling chih" which is Chinese
for Mushroom of Immortality

believed to have anti-cancer/medicinal properties

other possible identities are
Ganoderma curtisii and
Ganoderma tsugae

which are similar
and possibly both grow in
florida as well

Is it like a hot orange color on the top?

Found a specimen this year that must have weighed atleast 15 pounds.

I think it is Chicken of the Woods. It's found in California too. Is it bright pink/orange when you break it open? I remember it showing up every year in the late fall on a tree stump near my old school. It always got kicked to pieces and then turned gray...I felt sorry for it...

Hold on, didn't read it well enough. The one in California is called L. gilbertsonii. I guess it's good I never tried to eat it.
