5' plant in ground is next to sensor that read 29 on saturday night.  No major damage, upper 1/3 of newest leaf which opened up early December is a little crispy and some minor spotting on rest of frond.  Oldest fronds seem for the most part untouched.  Plant is on north facing wall with slight overhang on roof but is surround by Ferns and other plants.  Leaves however are openly exposed to air
