You'll notice how all of these are traditionally noted as very hardy species and they all pulled through similar temperatures this past January. Many of my other less hardy species (Caryota mitis, Dypsis lutescens, Ptychosperma elegans...etc.) will be burnt to the ground - AGAIN - and I will hope - AGAIN - for a rebound. Ugggghhhhh!

Amazing how cold it got outside of metro Orlando.

My girlfriend lives in Altamonte Springs and had 24F and someone I know who lives near Lake Mary had 22F on Wed. morning !!! And then I see that Orlando International Airport dropped to 24F Tues. night/Wed. morning. So for this 3 day freeze event, I looked up Orlando lows. These were for 12/27, 12/28, and 12/29;

That frost looks like snowfall. We got hit Tues a.m., supposedly to 35.6 (like !#@&). What survives this winter will look like !#@& most of the growing season. And, as I learned last winter the damage & death toll often don't show up for months.

On a hopeful note, low this morning was a balmy 57.6F. That's already warmer than many of my highs lately. Wish the sun would come out from behind the funky cloud cover and warm things further. Future highs through 1/6/11 will be in 70s (yay!). Long may that last. I'm so tuckered out with winter already.

How does it get colder in Port St. John than it does in Jacksonville? I have one report of 25F and another at 22F there! The royal palms there are probably toast.

Merritt Island stayed did not drop below 32F and I had one reading here in Rockledge at 28F.

Thanks for the article.

The last few years have been very discouraging. Some areas in Florida have been harder hit than other areas.

The last two winters have defined the zones for the east coast of Florida very well!
