    Haha, upper, that's what we look like here in FL all the time, but of course without the Hollywood sign

    so long as the soil in the pot didnt get cold enough to kill the roots it should pop back.....ive found the leaves to be fairly sensitive to cold but those roots are tough mo'fos.....the binata should be fine other than maybe loosing the current leaves

    lol one of my buddies went to college over in Bozeman up in the mountains.......said you could always tell the Montana and Wyoming girls....they would start sun bathing on the south laws in the spring as soon as the snow melted off the grass, temperatures be damned course if its 40 degrees and your laying in the sun and there is no wind its actually quite comfortable

    LOL! Sheridan gets "dry" cold! Western NY gets "wet" cold!

    Not sure about Rochester Metro, but Lake Erie is SW of the City of Buffalo and thus moderates Downtown and the Westside. On a clear day / night there could be a good 10 degree difference between what is along the prevailing wind, at the shore, and the rest of the region. For example, I left work at midnight, in Grand Island, and it was 38 F. By the time I was Downtown, it was 46 F. In East Aurora it was 36 F.

    Lake Ontario is north of the City, so that SW wind may not do to Rochester what it does to Buffalo. I know you do get lake effect, though,... just with a different wind direction.

    Jim,
    I think Rochester & Buffalo get about the same effects from their respective lakes..no major differences..

    Last night there was no frost within 5 miles or so of the Lake Ontario shore..because the Lake keeps it warm..

    the lake keeps the shoreline warmer in the fall and cooler in the spring..

    the only differences between Rochester & Buffalo is probably Buffalo gets more Lake Effect snow off of Erie than we get off of Ontario, but Rochester still gets a fair amount of lake effect off of Ontatrio every year..
    the "lake effect season" began last week with quite a bit of lake effect rain..

    We somwtimes get lake effect snow off of Ontario AND Erie at the same time!
    if its a particularily long Lake Erie plume..

    The plants I was concerned about are fine. But the Devil's Claw plants all withered. They're done. At least I got seeds from two fruit.

    Scot: What is it like just NE of Lake Ontario? Is it considerably worse lake effect?
