Brahea in snow

Will this little bit of snow harm my baby armata?

 It’s my first one. 
Any tips on how to clean it out? Thorns..

B. armata here in Texas get snow from time to time.  I'm guessing your palm will be okay unless the overall temp was too low or you stay wet and cool for to long.  Keep and eye on it. You might pour some hydrogen peroxide on it if you feel like it would help.  But I would wait and see what it is looking like in a month or more before doing so.  I expect it will be ok.

Thanks. Snow wasn’t forecast, or I would have covered it. It was too hard to remove from the crown. I moved it under the patio just in case it happens again (still in full sun) and it’s now melted.

Might be able to use a hair dryer on cool, or a leaf blower.

That’s a great idea. I thought about canned air but didn’t want to freeze it
