Whoah! That's cold. Well, today has been the coldest dawn throughout this winter for us. Hope it stays that way. 

3.3c/38F @ 6:45am in my garden. 

Before that our lowest was 5.8C/42.4F on Jan 6.

As I mentioned,  temps dropped to 3.3c/38F this morning and have rebounded to 20C/68F by noon (right now @1:50pm 21c/70F) in the garden.

That said, the potted palms by the south facing wall are getting 31.5C/88.7F of heat and the wall behind them is at a toasty 35C/95F.

Here are some pics. As you can see the Adonidia merrillii has presented cold spots. Bear in mind other than where it is placed, it has had no supplemental electrical heating throughout its winters here. A little experiment.

Cheap, easy to install, can see on my phone anywhere in the world.

Exact accuracy is in question.  I mounted mine on my roof only a foot above black asphalt shingles.

Love them for the price and ease of set up and use. 

In Spring/Summer they are much cheaper in store than online.

Also different brand than they sell online as well.

      Found This palm survived unprotected in Southern Humble Texas
      There was 2 queens one died, and dead washingtonia next to it which makes it remarkable this one survived.

      First winter with palm trees. My sylvesters had a good bit of freeze damage but there’s still green in the middle of both so they’re still alive. I’m pretty sure most of the damage is now over because it is starting to get warmer.
      But I need to know exactly how I should treat this in Spring.
      Should I cut off everything except for the meristem on both palms? And should I spray fungicide in them or is there no need to? 
       
      (The photos of when they were green is for reference of how badly they were burned in the cold)

      I woke up to news Cape Coral has been issued a freeze warning for overnight Sunday - thanks, Alexa. Gets better and better all the time. I got nearly a 1/2 acre densely planted with palms that haven't experienced lows below 40F in 5-6 years or more and nothing below 37F since 2010. If my bad luck holds it may be the end of the world for many of them. But if my luck changes for the better and the forecast lays an egg you won't find me complaining.
      But to focus my anxiety I went out and took "Before" photos for future reference. Up until a week ago, winter had been deceptively benign. I know, you really can't fool Mother Nature.
      I'll start with our Back Yard Jungle, aka "World's Smallest Jungle." It is situated facing south on a little ridge overlooking the equally distinguished "Isabelle Canal", our 80' wide freshwater canal (fact: Cape Coral  is home to 400 miles of salt- and freshwater canals, basins, weirs, boat locks and lakes that earn it the monikers "Venice of the South" and "Water Wonderland"). The back of our house shields the jungle from north winds. The winter sun moderates incoming cold fronts - usually.

      So far to date, this winter storm is undoubtedly the biggest event so far in Europe this season. Excluding the unseasonably warm spell for western and central Europe back in late December / early January, there hasn't been much else for us to talk about. However, this snowfall event is certainly significant and more than likely record breaking for Greece and Turkey. Northern Syria got hit pretty bad too, as did eastern Europe in general. I certainly don't recall many of these areas getting hit this bad before. It must be the worst snow storm to hit the Med region in several decades, surely?
      Starting with Greece, this was Athens on Monday afternoon, before things got real bad there...
       
      However this is Athens tonight, after it snowed all day long... absolutely crazy scenes!
       
      The islands in the Greek Med got hit as well, especially Mykonos...
       
      The honeymoon island of Santorini like you have never seen it before...
       
      Turkey also got hit hard. Check out these scenes in Istanbul! 2-3 foot of snow in places...
       
      This is one of the main highways into Istanbul...
       
      This same weather system has dumped a lot of snow on northern Syria as well. There are literally millions of refugees that are living in tents with blizzards and -5C temps...
       
      Here's the system responsible...

      Have a question, I have some 2' to 3' windmill palms in the ground, here in Greenville SC.
      What is a easy way to protect from freeze.
      Is there something I can buy local. Thanks
