Preparing for the Big Freeze Week

 Temps hit only 32F this morning but not until 6:30  which means that the cold was only for an hour before the sun came up.

The afternoons are going to rise to the high 50's if only we can protect the yard through the week, we will not keep these cold temperatures for long!  I have been hearing about Syracuse, NY, on our news and prefer my cold weather to be news bites on the television only!
