Last night was our coldest night of the year.
But not freezing at Naples Airport.
Last time we recorded a sub 32° temperature there was January 11th, 2009 (as indicated by the bottom-most red dot on the graph above). That was the year that the the Tamiami Trail iced over (see photograph below). Last night was cold but not that extreme but it did have residents scurrying to cover their flowering plants and vegetables.

At least there they have proper heating systems.
Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating - Minnesota winters are probably colder.
