Fully Frozen Frosted Greens and Lettuces: Bets?

It is 6:32 am and I just gained an hour of sleep although technically we subtracted an hour and I slept the same length of time.

Here are some pictures of my greens as of about 10 minutes ago. I am in the suburbs so I typically get 3-5 degrees lower temps then what is on the news. I did miss this frost was coming. But I am going to bet 90% of my greens are okay. Ill see'll how they look this afternoon.

If they are wilting, their cells were ruptured by the frost bursting their cells. Greens and lettuce have some resistance to this.
