Big drop to hard freeze

Well, last night we had a huge drop in temperatures, down from 60s and 70s to a hard freeze. Some areas of the county dipped into the low 20s. My beautiful vegetables had no time to gradually adjust to winter temperatures, so the beds were devastated. The leaf lettuces were frozen solid this morning: perfect, beautiful, hard as a rock lettuce heads. I expect to find them melted into mush by the afternoon. Here is a before frost picture from 3 days ago. I will post an after frost picture soon.
