Maybe that's why she's cooling things down, she's tired of seeing Shewood's legs. :poke:

Got closer here, down to near 40 last night.

:confuse: Forecasting scattered frost here tonight, got to get the last of the tomatoes off the vines after work. Might be a few crook neck squash too. Sad to see it come but gotta have some fall and winter before spring can roll around again.

We had an overnight low of 46F. Little too cool for this time of year. We are suppose to get back to normal temps over the weekend. I do like the cooler temps after the high humidity we had at the beginning of the week.

No frost here yet but it was down to 40f the other night. It could happen this weekend as the latest tropical storm is now past us and cold air is pouring in behind it. I plan on starting to get the 54 blade ready for this winter. It needs paint and I have a new edge to install. I need to get at that before it gets too cold to paint in the garage.

They're calling for frost again tonight. I might just fire up the mower early in the morning. Frozen grass breaks nicely, and no clean up required.

Heck, if I find the right spot, and aim properly, I might be able to launch some frozen goose stuff your way Brian.:poke:
Cover the pool Brian, I'm gonna use 93 octane fuel. :bigrofl::bigrofl::bigrofl:

It froze here yesterday morning. Had things covered thankfully. This morning it was near 40 degrees. I don't think they are expecting more frost for a while now.
