We have a week of sub-freezing weather predicted. Since we are not accustomed to it, the consequences will be frozen and broken water pipes throughout the area. Up to now, the weather has been so mild that my fruit trees are budding, so no fruit this summer.

I will probably loose my loquats this year. (Maybe not)
Jacksonville is milder than San Antonio though. Tallahassee can get like Austin.
I don't have citrus.

Too early for peaches etc..That's why I ask.
There are some oddball varieties recommended for South Florida and the Brownsville area. They might bud now. Wouldn't be recommended for N Florida though.

A half hour West of Tallahassee. We are too far inland for the Gulf to modify the temps. I just, an hour ago, picked all of the remaining Meyer lemons, and tangerines but the poor trees are flowering so there goes the next crop. My Loquats are just beginning to form so the next few days will do them in. I have a bumper crop of Calamondins ripe on the two trees, but I don't have the energy to pick them. We have given up on peaches here, it just generally doesn't get cold enough for the buds to crystalize. We have four days of hard freeze lined up starting tonight. Mind you, mine is just a hobby orchard so there is not big financial loss, but I do enjoy growing fruit.

I just ate one of the grapefruit sized tangerines and it was delightful.

Tomorrow morning I may sound like this "sportscaster." https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/reporter-rants-boss-live-air-155939746.html

Citrus was lost here in 1989, then again in 2021. (Single digits) It regrew from the sour orange rootstock

We have lots of "sour orange" trees around town.

Protect the budgraft and area above it, so the area above the graft will regrow. We got down to 15 last night.

Peaches are hard to grow here. Not cold enough.

day as temps plummet to 20 degrees after sunset, tonight. My greatest fear is losing electricity; will not only be cold in my house, but will allow my pipes to freeze. Have a ginormous fireplace, but not enough split wood to last all night and tomorrow. Just watched the 1965 Dr. Zhivago movie last week -- and fear my house will resemble the "ice house" in that film.

and I finally got a chance to see it last winter. Seemed like an appropriate time to watch.

I was familiar with the main song, and assumed it might appear a couple of times in the movie. Sheesh, did they get their money's worth out of that tune.

Beautifully shot, though, and the endless snowscapes were fascinating.

19. Look out for frozen iguanas falling from the trees! 🌴🦎🌴🦎

Dec 2022
https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2022/12/22/cold-iguanas-florida-falling-sea-turtles/

"....Sometimes, the National Weather Service in Miami issues announcements for “falling iguanas” to emphasize the severe cold and let people know the lizards are not, in fact, dead. But the freeze is temporary most of the time. When temperatures rise, some wake up and resume their normal activities. In the past, people have loaded the frozen iguanas, thinking they were dead, in the back of a car to harvest their meat, only to have the lizards thaw and attack. (So perhaps, don’t do that.)
...
"Some other lizards are also known to fall out of trees as iguanas do, but they don’t get the publicity that a five-foot lizard does,” said Jonathan Losos, an evolutionary biologist at Washington University in St. Louis.

But researchers and animal experts say the cold spells don’t seem to incapacitate the iguanas like they used to, suggesting that animals are adapting to the chilly weather. People may still see iguanas dropping during the upcoming cold blast, but not as many as two to three decades ago, said Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill.

“With each year when we get a cold streak, I see less and less of those iguanas falling out of trees and being cold-stunned … and it’s not because there are less and less iguanas,” Magill said. “It’s just indicative that these animals are, in fact, adapting. Less and less of them are succumbing to this type of temperature differential.”...(more)

I can't picture a home frozen like that in Fla!

Yeah, pipes might burst. But result is flooding. Water won't go through when frozen. Then when it thaws, it floods. At least that was how it was in our big Texas freeze.

My house "felt" like that last night. I had on coats etc. Still freezing. Finally looked at thermostat at 4 am. Hubby kept setting it to 74. I cranked it up to 80. I finally warmed up. House isn't built for cold at all.

We had the temperature drop Wednesday night, a bit over 1” snow on Thursday. No rain before the drop, so no ice AFAIK. lowest was about -8.

Nothing compared to incident 41 year ago, north of Detroit — rain all day into the night, dive below zero, 6” snow all day. Still got to work in my little FWD econobox, 2” of ice in parking lot. Manager of the production floor ordered in pizza that day so his people wouldn’t venture out for lunch.

Dh and one of my kids is out with the dogs, walking. I haven't seen any cars go by.

The other kid is supposed to fly into SeaTac, but his flight today was cancelled. I read that SeaTac has one open runway. PDX has zero.

His flight is rescheduled for tomorrow and we ended up getting him a flight from Seattle to Portland. There weren't any Amtrak seats left tomorrow. Zero, in any class. The only plane ticket we could find (one!) was in first class.
