RE: Freeze 27 deg

Jesse, it sounds like your "furred family" is increasing, too!
Congratulations on the babies!  Perhaps the little ones will be
pre-conditioned to surviving the colder temperatures of the winter being
born in fall?

We've had a couple of nights in the mid-30's too.  Frost threatened twice,
so far, but seemed to evade our lot.  The leaves are just starting to turn
nicely.  It should be a beautiful fall.   I would like it to warm up for
just a couple of weeks to get gardening jobs finished and the puppies well
on their way to being housebroken.  (Well, I can dream, can't I?  It's a
real job just scooping output from 9 puppies!  It's a never ending job right
now, but they are all so sweet, cute and funny!  I dressed a couple up in a
"boo" sweater for photos for their soon to be new families.  They got a real
charge out of the photos.  One wanted to buy the sweater, but like I told
her--the sweater won't fit in another 3 days or so!  I guess it is worth it
playing "pooper scooper for another 3 weeks.  ;>D)

It got down to 38 Saturday and Sunday morning here. Brrrrrrr. And we had
twin goats born Saturday morning. They picked a cold morning to be born.
We went down and wrapped them up and put a heat lamp in there.

Definitely not my kind of weather. Just the thought of it makes me want

Me, too. The same cold front arrived here late this morning, and now I am 
so sleepy I can hardly keep my eyes open. Guess it's some gene memory of 
hibernating. It's supposed to go down to the 40's tonight. I am NOT ready 
for this; it's way too early. My Confederate Rose (Hibiscus mirabilis) is in

full, glorious bloom as is the Lespedeza thunbergii. I am not ready for 
them to croak just yet, thank you very much. We shouldn't be having frost
sometime next month. (She said hopefully.)
