Re: squeaked by last night here without a freeze

Message from Alex NYC

Last night was a close one! I still have a few palms out including my Livistonas. The Livistonia in the ground is good until about 20F but I have seen damage on my potted Livis from temperatures in the upper 20s. I was worried because the low temperature had forecasts for the upper 20s but we managed to bottom out at 32F.
No forecasts for a freeze for the next 15 days! Central Park still has not seen its first freeze of the SEASON and it might not into the first week of January. So amazing.
I am glad you are still freeze free. It has been such a great start to winter. In 2 months most of us will be well out of the palm damage territory and we'll have summer to look forward to!
Hopefully the forecast stays nice, I'm sure Christmas time will be really beautiful in the southeast this year!
