Could be worse.  Right now (5 PM) it is 3 degrees, the wind is blowing 
at at least 35 mph, and it is going to get colder this evening.  Checked 
my greenhouse (cold house actually) and the soil is frozen, the lettuce 
is likewise frozen, and the rosemary looks very unhapy. Worse to come.  
My son has to go back to school sunday.  He goes in western Maine and it 
looks like a drive through freezing rain, sleet and snow.
