Yesterday morning was the coldest of the period, with a low of 17. This morning was 25. Yesterday it got to 52, and that extra warmth from the day before when it only reached 45 really made the difference.
Now we're getting back to regularly scheduled weather. Today should be in the 60s, and in a few days we'll be in the high 60s and this will be only a bad memory. Well, except for the plants which were damaged. I might lose some young carobs and yellow bird of paradise shrubs. And the young valencia is looking very ragged. It could lose all its leaves, and might die.
