good for you. that said, for many folks the shortest day is not always the coldest day of the year and in fact the coldest temps may wait until January or February when many land and air masses have had time to cool down even further. the days may now be getting longer but the warming effect of those longer days effect is often at best minute in the initial stages.
think the real concern for you and your plants and the rest of the Golden State (and for that matter the entire west coast to at least some degree) is not cold but the lack of significant winter precipitation so far and the increasing chances of both drought and wildfires this coming dry season---of which the terrible fires in southern California now may be a foretaste of the future.
