    Everybody post your first frost date and low temperatures. That way we can see colder temps as they move across our country.Here in north Louisiana my low temp so far has been in the high 60’ s. After all the 100+ days,I’m ready for colder temps.

    Ha... 49 the other morning and the marine layer has remained well into afternoon before moving back off shore the past week.

    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories

    Dug out the spuds from a part of the garden not used for spuds before/ I was disappointed in the low yield vs my tub grown spuds.

    As I dug deeper looking for any hiding, the soil felt really cold. I kept digging. I hit ice at less than a foot down This after a long summer and a fair amount of rain.

    It seems that part of the property now has an 'ice lens' - extreme cold early in the winter coupled with a late snow that was thinner than usual must have contributed, as did the late and very cold 'Spring' this year.

    And people wonder why I scoff at the claims of AGW....

    I sure look forward to the first hard frost this winter. The mosquitoes after Hurricane Florence have been terrible. Only place I remember them being worse was around hog farms in Okinawa, Japan during the 1980's.

    My the first frost I suspect that Walmart will have pallet loads of bug spray right at the entrance, like they have bottled water now.

    Got out of the sauna and took a quick dip in the lake. water was about 25 degrees warmer than the air.
    dock was already frosted and had to walk deliberately.

    Record warm so far this fall in east TN....9 days of 90+ degree days when it should be mid 70's. Lows still in the 60's, about 10-12 degrees above normal.

    We're a;ready in the low 30's at night and it doesn't look life temps will be out of the 50's during the day for the next week or so. Getting chilly but a welcome change
