Can you believe it, I just woke up and we have had our first frost, a week 
early!  This is the earliest we've had one since I've lived in this area.  
Themometer says it got down to 33F but there is ice on the windshield of 
the car.

The temperature was plesant enough yesterday I was able to mow some 
tall weeds and weed a bed of small shrubs that have been long lost.  I hope 
by removing the weeds I didn't expose overly tender leaves to the last 
nights cold.

What weird weather.  You would never know this morning that just a few 
days ago it was about 60 during the night and in the 90's during the day!
