frost tolerance of peppers

I don't like to pull up posts from decades ago, but this one

is the only thing online that pertains to what I just saw last night. Temps got down to 30.5F for an hour or two, my peppers and winter squash were right next to each other. Unpredicted freeze (they were predicting 35F!), and plants were unprotected. Peppers survived, and winter squash did not. I guess I'm inclined to say, as the OP from 16 years ago, that peppers are VERY SLIGHTLY frost tolerant, while squash are not. Who knew?
