Nice, I stayed up until 2am protecting plants a couple winters ago. It was mostly cactus and succulents at that point. I spent all that energy and money covering/protecting them and afterwards realized I should have just pulled a majority of them from the ground and stacked them in my garage. They would have received less damage too. You can’t do that with most palms though.

Wow that would be rough on the palms if they are big.  But possible I guess if small or you keep them pot planted in ground.   My garage is already full of potted stuff anyway LOL!

Yeah, I don’t think I would try that with any palm except maybe freshly planted seedlings. Cactus, yucca, and Agave don’t care. You can carelessly rip them out of the ground, throw them bare root on the pavement and come back weeks later to plant them.
