I run up and down I-4 between Tampa and Orlando all the time and the amount of damage varies. I saw 26F in Lutz (just north of Tampa), and it looks like Avalon Park, on the east side of Orlando (my other place to crash) hit 28F.
Land for sale in Davenport
This is a front yard. The dude had nothing but dates aligned perfectly in a row at various stages of growth. I guess he sells them?
A lot of majesties look sickly here, but this is a nice one.
Older frond damage from the cold? Most of the other pygmies with damage had the tops bronzed. Neighbors dates looked untouched.
Lots of scorched Christmas palms
Nice Dioon (I believe?)
Scorched in Lakeland
Even here in Lutz, Monsteras suffered damage.
One of the home owners I was dealing with had a goat. I love goats and wish have wanted one for a while.
