I think the lowest we got was Thursday night when one of the thermometers showed 24 degrees. The other monitoring thermometer I have outside showed 26 degrees. I found a page that shows temperatures from other people right around the neighborhood, and their lows were showing in the upper teens. They are virtually right down the street, so I'm not sure why such a drastic difference.

We uncovered the trees today and will folding up the tarps to put them away. The citrus trees don't look too bad that we didn't cover up, but not sure how much leaf fall we are going to have on the Meyer lemon trees.

Supposed to bet down to around 32 degrees again next Sunday, but that is far enough away that there isn't a chance in hell that the weather service will be accurate within 5 degrees or more.

Damn! Looks like another round of cold nights coming this week. Starting Saturday and continuing thru Thursday night. Of course, this changes every time I look at it, with the cold nights becoming extended further into the week each time.

So we'll be covering the younger citrus trees again.

You may get even a colder shot later this coming week. I don't think this cold pattern will last much longer and we will stuck into a flat, warm and dry pattern.

Looks like Wednesday night will be the coldest night in this series. Looking at the latest forecasts, anyway. Maybe 23 to 24 degrees.

Maybe people need to cut out this crap with trying to stop global warming.

Looks like Connie has got quite a meal on her hands! Just one of those sections from her pomelo is larger than the entire tangerine I eat at breakfast. It takes her about a week to eat the entire thing.

I've got three temperature sensors at the same spot on the front porch. They show a low temperature last night of 24, 23.5 and 21.9 respectively. No idea which one is the more accurate of the three, but for certain, it was COLD last night.

I guess it should come as no surprise that anything related to the weather seldom has any sort of accuracy component embedded. The forecast for the low tonight, depending on whose forecast I look at, states 21 or 26 degrees. I guess if I have to, I'll take the 26 degrees, thank you. That has changed probably two dozen times over the several days I've been monitoring their predictions.

It is still only 44 degrees outside, and not likely to get much warmer.

You know, 2018 sure doesn't have a lot in the positive sense to say about it yet. At least as far as the weather is concerned.

What do I need to do in order to help get that "global warming" back on track?
