Frost here in eastern Kentucky the night of November 1 and tonight, Nov. 2.
Our first frost - and our frost date is Oct 10!! Late this year. This is one
year I'm glad to see frost. It takes away our West Nile infected mosquitoes.
I have been infested with granddaddy longlegs since moving here!! Frost
takes those away too - thank goodness. It's unnerving for one of my dogs to
carry them in on their backs!

I hope the spiders have scattered for the winter as well. There are many
brown recluse here - and I've developed a spider phobia as a result. A few
black widows - one I saw in my bathroom recently.

I guess this is the deal when one lives in the woods. You gotta take the
good with the bad!
