According to the LA Times,the record cold temperatures we have been having are taking their toll on fruit crops in the area, where the temperature has dipped to as low as 25 degrees.

The cold snap has been a particular concern for citrus farmers across the state, who have been up all night since Thursday. There are $1 billion in oranges, lemons, tangerines and grapefruit still on trees in California, the nation’s largest producer of fresh citrus.
