(Growers survive the first freeze of the year)….The cold front has broken.
Temperatures are returning to normal. For the last few days’ growers were worried. They brought in extra crews and took every precaution to protect against a freeze that could have damaged lettuce, citrus and other crops. They say fortunately, it did not freeze long enough to cause any serious damage. The National Weather Service says temperatures will now return to normal, and may even register above normal this weekend.
