As freezing temperatures come across the region, many wonder how it will affect farmers and their crops.
While tomato farmers are getting worried, orange growers are actually embracing the cold.
"The critical temperature is 28 degrees," said Steve Crump, owner of Vo-LaSalle Farms. "Luckily, we didn't get anywhere near that."
Crump said there are benefits to the temperature drop.
"Colder temperatures help to change the color of the fruit on the tree and change the acid to sugar ratio in the fruit," said Crump.
So while Mother Nature tries to test the citrus crop, for now, we can all still get our orange juice!
