First Frost


We awoke to a chilly -2.5, with a windchill of -5.  Yes!  That is correct!  I know the words "windchill" and "minus" should never be spoken of in September, but here we are...and isn't it beautiful?!? ( Notice how even the trees are white with frost.)

I could sit here and complain, but there is something cozy and wonderful about cold mornings.  The wood stove has a warm fire and it calls for a large mug of hot chocolate...and it also means no more cutting grass!!! Yah!!  One less chore!  :)

Wow!! so did it just get cold overnight or have you guys been cooling off slowly?? we are still in the mid to high 80's out here. In fact we can now open our windows at night and allow the house to cool off that way instead of using our ac.
hope that cold isn't coming here to soon...I would like a nice fall.

Yes, the cold came suddenly. We were enjoying +30 last week!
