I fully understand the concept (and always have). I'm simply saying you are WAY overstating its influence in this case. And the data I provided upthread proves it.

Why do people have to argue all the time on here?
It's boorish, tiring and reminiscent of "my button is bigger than yours". Ugh.

Why do people waste time commenting on posts they consider boorish and tiring? Its pointless, silly and reminiscent of "I'm a very stable genius". Ugh.

What data? Snow cover absolutely effects how low the temp will go. Clear skies, calm winds, and snow cover will cause temp to drop much lower than they normally would have. 10 to 15 degree difference is very possible if you don't have one of those factors in place. Where I live it only dropped to 10 due to a stiff breeze overnight. 20 minutes away didn't have the breeze and dropped to near 0. Greenville is only 40 minutes from me. 16 degrees is a pretty good drop in only 30 miles as the crow flies.

Last night it was 3 degrees in Salisbury (no snow), for example, and 0 in Greenville. If the light snow cover made 15 degrees difference, it would have been much colder in G'ville. There are many other similar data points that can be found.

As to the original question, no apparent damage to any plants at my house here in Southport.

Some frost damaged shrubs in Calabash Lakes especially around the newer homes. Hope they can recover.

Is there a moderator around here that can remove the off topic posts? Jeeze.. Dude just wanted to know if you saw any damage, not get into a meteorological argument.
