1985 in Florida

Recommended Posts

Here are my records from 1985 . While the '83 freeze was quite bad ,this seems to me

to have been more devastating in total effect .

This set the ALL TIME low in Daytona Beach , and then matched the previous All time low

on the following day .

About 95% of the Queen palms in this area died , and about 75% of the Washingtonias as well.

There were no green Citrus trees visible along US27 ( which passes down through the heart of the

industry), until well south of Frostproof . Virtually every Australian Pine , Silk Oak ,Mangrove etc , regardless

of size died.

I remember it well. It was even colder in Jax. There wasn't much left to kill after the Dec 83 freeze.

Palms not just a tree also a state of mind
