Re: Glad you stayed above freezing!
Sorry to hear about the duration of the cold. It's amazing how different even Ocala is from Orlando being only an hour away. I-4 seems to be the dividing line down here just as I-95 was up North. Around town, there are definitely signs of frost/freeze on the more tender plants. A golf course I was playing today had more damage than I thought. Lots of burnt Ti plants and bananas and bird of paradise. Even the bermuda grass was all brown, something I've never seen in my 5 years here. Arecas are very yellow/brown across town but they are very tender. Time will tell for the coconut. So far it looks to be faring well.
Good luck. I think we have 1 more cold week then a decent, longer term warmup!
