What a lovely cold front. We hit a low of 21 last night. They had forecast a low of 26, but we hit that around 4-5 PM yesterday. But this morning is lovely, and we've warmed up to all of 31degrees by 11:30 AM. Tonight they are saying a low of 31 degrees with a 50% chance of rain/freezing rain. And we're supposed to hit a high of 47 today. So it will be a roller coaster weather the next few days.
And again, no gardening for me. Glad the plants are covered.
Just a side note, I've already had a few irises blooming, purple irises.
We had a lovely mid-70's degree day yesterday. Today it has dropped from 69 to 48 in about an hour, this morning. And now we have rain. Tonight it due for a cold low of about 29 degrees. We had 80 degree weather just the other day. The other day when we had the cold come thru I had covered the plants out back. I had not uncovered them. Now I'm glad I left them covered.
I guess no gardening for me today.
Update: Its 12:30 and it has dropped to 38 outside. And we've now had 0.35 inches of rain. Like I said, weird weather.
2nd update: its 4pm and we have gotten down to 32. Now they are saying a low of 26 for tonight. Cold evening here tonight.
