Our early snow was followed by early winter cold: this morning when we went out the door for school, it was 15 degrees F! That's about -9 C!
I wished I had brought my camera, because all of the little drainage ditches around had hazes of fog over them. When I came home, mysterious little puffs of vapor were coming up out of the ditch next to the road, spaced about every two or three feet apart.
Although it has warmed up by 17 degrees, warm is relative: it just got up to freezing. Now I remember the point of knitting warm things.
