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.

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. :)

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.
