Looks like most of southern middle TN made it to freezing. My nearest reporting station had 28 for a couple of hours. I was above freezing on the hill when I left the house, but that was before daylight. Was 29-31 all the way into town on the car.

We dropped to 25F briefly around 3:30 AM.  Fortunately, some clouds moved in around that time and stabilized the temperature; otherwise we would have gone lower.  We were below freezing out here on the valley floor for about seven hours.

We lost our pecan crop ... again.  I planted those trees fourteen years ago and have yet to see a nut thanks to the crappy weather here in Middle Tennessee.

I didn't think pecans could be grown here. I thought it got too cold. I guess this answers my question.

My grandfather used to have a pecan tree & it produced well when things went right. The same goes for a family member who has one now.

The trees are fine here; they tend to leaf out too early to bear fruit regularly.  However, after inspecting them more closely this morning, I can see some leaf buds that had not opened.  Perhaps I'll get a nut this year after all.

I have enjoyed every second of it. I will take boring over severe weather any day of the week. I am thankful any time we have beautiful weather.

Got down to 30 here this morning.  Nothing seems damaged, but the canopy of hickory trees overhead prevented much frost.  At a lower elevation than me, Sevierville got down to 27.

My mom in London, KY got down to 28, and the Japanese maples there seems to have suffered some damage.  She lives in a more open area, and the frost was heavy.  A canopy of trees does make a difference.

The late frost/freeze and late-season snow in KY/IN kinda made things somewhat interesting. It wasn't quite the 55 cloudy and boring every day we saw in years like 2013, 2014, or 2015.

Hopefully. That way you don't have to keep postponing your prediction.  ;D
