Crow’s Nest: Now that’s frost!

October 20, 2015

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager


It’s balmy again today, but yesterday! I don’t think I have seen such a dramatic effect of sudden cold weather before.

We had some frost Saturday night (about 32 on the porch) but Sunday night it was down to 28 or less at the preserve. Mulberry trees lost their leaves immediately. The catalpa in the yard lost all its leaves in a single day. All the annuals—gone.

Well that’s the time of year!
