Fairmont, WV(Zone 6a)

Light frost at my place here in north central WV. Brought in the few tender annuals I had outside. Didn't appear to lose anything. 35 F now at 6:00 am, supposed to warm up to 68 F.

Everyone else do OK?

No frost here apparently. I checked the outside temperature at 3:30 am and it was 45 then. Nothing outside looks like it was nipped. I brought the really tender things inside.

It's very warm out now - 77 - but the forecast is calling for a low of 41 tonight, so those of you here in the mountains might want to watch for frost again tonight.

Fairmont, WV(Zone 6a)

We had light frost here again this morning...about 35 F at 6:30 am. How did everyone do?

pam

Middle of, VA(Zone 7a)

I brought in (again) the tropical type stuff in pots...whew getting a workout w/the Plumeria and rooting Cacti!!! Everything else got left out there and looked fine this AM. Weather forecast...looks great now...more mild temps both day and night!!!

Shenandoah Valley, VA

No frost here last night, thank goodness. Are your plants all okay, phuggins?

Fairmont, WV(Zone 6a)

Plants are all okeydokey. I brought in my few tender annuals and everything else is pretty hardy. No frost this morning and it's supposed to warm up quite a bit over the weekend. :)

pam

Shenandoah Valley, VA

That's good. The forecast I have calls for nighttime lows in the 60s for the next seven days so hopefully no more frost warnings this year.
