Overnight low last night was *only* 27.5 degrees. Forecast low for tonight is 42 degrees. Well it was earlier today, let me check it now.... Well one forecast is still saying 42 degrees, but the other one if claiming 40 degrees. Whatever...

I uncovered everything and surprisingly the pineapple plants look OK. But the citrus trees, well, nearly all the leaves are curled up on them, which is not a good sign. Hope the trees themselves didn't get killed. But won't know that for a while. Have to wait and see if new leaves form when Spring rolls around.

Couple of more weekends like this last one and they probably all will be history.

Low temp last night got down to 25.3 degrees. Didn't cover any plants, didn't drip any pipes. Nothing. Screw it. Whatever will be will be.

Our Satsuma tree looks dead from that 17 degree blast we got a couple or three weeks ago. Like black leaves dead. The lemon tree lost about 95% of its leaves as did the Kumquat but they just curled up and fell off. The Satsuma's leaves are still on it but black. I guess we'll see what happens in the Spring.

Overnight low of 29.7 degrees last night.

Most of our citrus trees have been completely denuded of leaves. I hope none of them got killed outright by that cold Christmas weekend we had.

Sometimes I do wish that Connie and I had moved further south than we did. But then again, highly unlikely we could have found 50 acres at an affordable price like we did up here. At least anything that wasn't swampland.

No land like that down here unless you get into Glades county.
