Coldest Morning of the Season

It is cold out this morning. It is the coldest morning of the season, thus far. As some would read the thermometer, it is not really that cold. It is not the bone chilling frigid weather being faced by people living in the midwest where Denver saw -1 the other day. Thankfully, it is definitely not that cold.

But still, cold is cold. My local weather station reports the temperature at 23.8 degrees Fahrenheit. That qualifies as cold. A freeze, even. All of the annuals have dies with the recent spate of below freezing temperatures. It was sad to see them go, but freeing because the gardens are beginning the process of readying for revival.

A review of some of my favorite places finds temperatures ranging from 19 degrees in both Ithaca, NY,  and Denver, CO; to 75 degrees in, wait for it, Key West.

I noticed that it is 27 degrees in Charlottesville, so even the Virginia wine country is cold.

I could wish I was further south, but I'm not so I just have to deal with it.

I may even have to wear an overcoat this morning to protect myself from the chill.

As the day prepares for dawn, the temperatures will rise--but it will still be cold. 

Be careful out there!
