Well, there are very few spots suitable for anchoring in Lauderdale, anyway, but things there are considerably more relaxed now, at least for the time being...
Lake Sylvia is the obvious choice, and I've experienced no problems whatsoever there for the past several years... There were boats in there last winter that had been there for a month, or more... Convenient shore access is the major limitation, of course, but all things considered, I think it's still a great spot...
