Sorry to see/read about the arctic shell-shot gardens, esp in NoCal   :(

But "banana belts" came through unscathed  :;):

Here's how one garden in Los Angeles looked this morning :

It looks warm out there.  Undamaged bananas are a good sign as they show damage right away.

No hint of damage on any of my plants, bananas and other tropicals included, even my 2 new 1 gallon C. savoryanum seedlings.  I wanted to leave them out and unprotected just to see how they would do and came thru with flying colors which gives me confidence that when they get a little bigger they should do ok in my area.  A high of 77 and a low of 50 on Monday will make me forget that we ever even had this cold spell.
