Citrus cold frames held up under 20 inch snow storm.

The space heaters inside helped melt heavy snow off tops of covers. My boxier frame with flatter roof held snow but I think the thermo cube for that heater malfunctioned so I went to Tractor Supply today after the roads were cleared and got another one; supposed to get down to 24 degrees tonight.

I had to pull snow off of roof to prevent collapse. Some other pics:

It looks more like Colorado that North Carolina.

Fingers crossed that all goes well over there. Here, winter has been very mild but that can change very quickly.
