How did your frost-sensitive plants fare?

The temperature at my house this morning got down to 23 F.  My azaleas are toast.  I’ve seen temperatures below the killing frost level of 28 F down as far south as Valdosta in Georgia and a number of locations in northern Florida also experienced freezing temperatures.  I’m curious to hear how your flowering plants and frost-sensitive crops fared this morning.  If you would like to share a report, please email me at pknox at and tell me where you live and what you have seen over the last two days.  I’ll be discussing this on Georgia Public Broadcasting‘s “Second Thoughts” show at 9 am on Monday, so some ground truth would be great.  Thanks for your help!
