My wife and I and the pups all survived the cold. It was cold again this morning but this should be the end of the cold snap. It will be back in the 70's or higher. We have to have these short cold snaps so that we appreciate all the wonderful weather we do have in this area. The only time it gets bad here is when we get visitors from up north and wanted to impress them. Always seems to work that way. The last few nights were so clear that it looked like you could reach up and grab the stars and Jupiter was so very bright up there chasing the Pleiades from east to west, you could not ask for a clearer night.
Anyway, I was wondering if the cold killed off anything. The only thing that seemed to be missing were the mosquitoes, but they will be back. All the wild flora and fauna seemed intact. In fact, here is a picture of mushroom that is now growing along side of my driveway.
And the grass and neighboring wild plants still seem lush and green. So I guess our couple of nights of freezing temperatures didn't hurt anything, even me. I went out walking yesterday morning and it felt really good. Nice to have a taste of winter once in awhile. BTW, the weather man said that it may get quite cold for Christmas. Wow, do you think it would be possible to have a white Christmas down here??? Nah, that only happens once every 25 to 100 years or so. Who knows... OK, you all have a great day today and I have to take the garbage down to the road. That will give me some exhilarating exercise this cool, cool morning. Thanks for coming by for a read and hope you all return.
