Re: More Florida pics

8: Winter Haven
I am surprised about the severe damage on some foxtails and Christmas palms. Do they burn regularly here? Most of the area saw 26-28F temps with dips in the outlying areas, but that is some serious damage. I am still amazed that Tampa is not significantly warmer than Orlando. I would have thought the water would protect us, and was shocked to see colder temps here than in Orlando.
