    Where did the author get the picture of frozen palms in the hard freeze areas shown. The author is obviously not from Washington county. I detect a little sensationalism .

    Well, I did bring my potted Sago Palm inside. (St George) My Sago does not like the cold. I had Sago Palms on my property in Hawaii……they did very well there. Actually I had quite a variety of several types. Queen Palm, Alexander, Phoenix, Sago……..more

    What RETARD thinks this is in reference to St George? It CLEARLY lists the effected areas. Whoever thinks St George freezes the 2nd day of October CLEARLY has NO CLUE about this area. LOL

    HELLO IDIOTS!! If STG froze this early, I think we’d be in the ice age! You people are a riot! I’ve lived here many years and most years don’t see a freeze here in the lower desert areas until early December — after Thanksgiving. Read the article before making yourselves look stupid!
