Palmettoes more likely. They'll probably just barely survive. It snows at Myrtle Beach sometimes, occasionally gets quite cold, and the palmettoes seem to survive. Your climate is a bit more marginal, but a little snow doesn't necessarily doom them.
We got a lot more snow than expected here too. I hope the roads are cleaned up by Sunday night.

There is NOTHING as ugly as a dead palm tree, especially one killed by freeze.
I lived in Houston during the great 1983 Christmas freeze. A LOT of palm trees died then, and most of them were just left there.

And I thought I was having a problem because so many pecans were falling off the trees and getting lost in the leaves.

I have a rolling bed cover. It is sort of like those covers you used to see with a bazillion snaps all around the bed, but instead of snaps, there is a line of velcro along each side of the bed that holds the cover closed and a latching mechanism at the back of the bed to hold it tight and closed (I know, I'm not doing a real good job of describing this). Takes about 30 seconds to open the cover and roll it to the front in order to use the bed as a full pick-up bed. Otherwise, one can use the bed with the cover in place like an enclosed trunk. Best of both worlds.

Yeah, to cover up the gaping rust holes in the bed... I hear they actually cause rust, but OTOH they look at lot better than scratched up paint.

I have a crappy job because when push came to shove, I discovered that staying home was important enough to trump everything else. If it requires being subject to relocation, I won't do it unless I have absolutely no alternative. That rules out a *lot* of jobs these days. Like everything that pays money.
Dad's in the same boat, really. If the local company he works for goes under (and Wal-Mart competes with them, so you can see the writing on that wall), he's plenty qualified to take a similar job with any number of national chains (like Wal-Mart), but they'd all force him to be subject to random relocation.
Random relocation sucks. If I can't buy a house and live in it until I die, what's the point of working at all?

Well EXCUSE me.... I have a Dodge 3500 Cummins 4x4 with shell, Rhino spray on line AND plastic bed liner insert. So there,,,blaaat. :-))))))))
Seriously I like the Rhino as a primary protector of the metal and as a pretty good sound deadener. The plastic type insert came as part of the purchase deal but it does move and there are holes for the bed tie downs. I was concerned that the plastic line would wear through the paint of the bed with said movement and, paid to have the Rhino sprayed in prior to installing the plastic. Now I am considering having the lower portion of the cab sprayed with the Rhino stuff and eliminate the carpet. Which is a pain in the arse to keep clean and dry in wet muddy weather and harbors damp which could start rust ( so far so good ) in the floor of the cab. Also the sound deadening aspect of the spray on stuff appeals to me. Tales of a Boatbuilder Apprentice http://pages.sbcglobal.net/djf3rd /

'zactly what I have too. Great for keeping the snow out of the bed and off the plywood (and the road dust off the moose quarters).

I have the sprayed on Rhino liner, a rubber mat and the roll-up vinyl cover with the velcro side fasteners.
The spray on liner is way better than the plastic inserts because it doesn't allow moisture buildup between the liner and the bed, and it's got pretty good traction to it. Those plastic things are slippery.
The cover is great. The bed is always dry and clean.
