We were warned and he is here. Jack Frost came to us a full eighteen days sooner than last year. I admit it, I was spoiled by last year's late first frost on October 31 and the old timers around here tell me they were used to first frost coming more around Oct. 1, so to them this is late. I will take every extra growing day I can get! Aren't we lucky to live in an age when the weather forcasters give us good warning of the coming temps as opposed to having to make our best guess? They are not always accurate, but it sure does help!
