Crazy!
When I checked last night after midnight, North Port was colder than Ocklawaha in Marion county. So were Belle Glade and Fort Pierce. Some years we get it. We'll be colder than other areas by 4-6 degrees. Not this year. Other than some smoked Poinsettias in one neighborhood, I haven't seen any real freeze damage in about 24 months.

I covered my tomatoes a couple times back in January, but not since. Two got burned by frost, but the others are fine.
