Worst looks to be over here. Saw some damage already around town.

My last 3 nights were 34, 34, and 37. The first night was heavy frost. Highs were only 50-55. I'm fortunate to have a small amount of help from the chain of lakes. Orlando did officially record it's first freeze in almost 5 years. Two Disney parks recorded 29. I'll be curious to see how their coconuts at Epcot fared.
I saw a few coconuts around town with low, older fronds fried that werent that way a week ago. Mine is showing some new brown as well on lower fronds. I'll probably see more over time I'm sure. Newer fronds look green. Most Areca's near me were fried. Almost all brown. Also, my neighbor wrapped his crotons...I never realized they were so sensitive. I never have protected mine.
