I got 41 and 34 here (with light frost on the 34 night -- it dipped earlier than normal as it was already 37 and climbing at sunrise). I did cover everything for a solid freeze event (since some sites were predicting 32), and it looks like there was little to no "visible" damage (so far...) -- which is very good since I was just noticing new growth on lots of stuff that had been burned back by the first freeze but had already decided Spring had arrived based on the recent balmy conditions! (although I'm worried this could have finished off a recently planted Satakentia that was hit hard in that first freeze, as well as a couple tropical trees that also were in the ground for their first winter -- time will tell...)

33f the first morning and 32f the second with just a hint of frost. Other than the tops of a few Angels Trumpets, no damage noticeable. Mango has tiny fruits on it but it is so tall I have to climb it to get closer and inspect. It is flowering again, so there will be even more fruit this year! YUMMY! :mrlooney:

Begonias are my thing. I've been growing and selling them for three decades, nearly two in Tampa Bay. NPR is an bhour N of St Pete, coast

and it is back to 80F today

... and Europe is getting hammered :(

Not all of Europe has been hammered!

It's been a good winter here so far with only 3 air frosts, worst of which has been -1.4C (29.4F).

Still looking forward to spring though :D
