The freeze warning now includes Montgomery County.

They really should issue a frost advisory further south. Frost can actually be more damaging to sensitive plants than a light freeze.

That reminds me - as you know in Florida, orange farmers will cover the trees with water so that cooling freezes the water and thus protects the tree from frost-related damage.

Yes, they do. And the NWS offices down there are super-vigilant about frost and freeze advisories. But it’s necessary down there so maybe I am spoiled.

You know, since the wind went calm, trick-or-treating with the kids was just fine. The glass (couple) of wine helped too ;) Happy Halloween everyone!!
