Cause for concern,princept frond damage,and update on other palms

Message from karen nc

I noticed that a few of my princept fronds are brown on the tips and a little ways down the fronds,on 3 of them.i have had a few freezing lows of 27f and tonight will be another low of 27f.the center is still very green and otherwise looks great(i think).is this something to be concerned about.I caint get my pics to upload to my laptop,sorry it might help if you could see it .my trachys look great.i see some browning on my sago fronds as well.minors are green as green could get.I left myelephant foot in the ground it is wrapped with burlap and mulch at the base.(this is real iffy i know,but we will see in the spring if it survives)I put in the ground in the spring after having it potted for a couple years.it showed nice growth at the base so i did not want to dig it out .lol hopefully i wont cry when i unveil it.
