    Woke up this morning to see the neighbor scraping his frosted windshield.

    Guess our first frost was last night!
    The question is what to do, and the answer, as always, is complicated by a muddle of reason, emotion, and doubt.

    We reached out freezing points on Oct 12-14, 2019.
    There was ice in the buckets and bird basins.

    Not the killing frost just yet - the dandelions are still blooming in the parks.
    We will still have few sunny days with some pollen flow.

    South end of the Salt Lake valley, 23 (-5C) on October 10. Sunday was sunny and warm again, today 73 (23C). Saturday will be 32 (0C).

    The hard freeze essentially terminated the pollen flow, but they are finding and bringing in pollen.

    Near Paducah, KY (Climate Zone 7a)- killing frost on Halloween. This is on par with our average first frost date of October 29th.

    Richmond, VA 11/2/19, 34F. Not a killing frost, but getting there. Thursday it was 80F.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    Ice in the bee waterer (birdbath) and on top of buckets this morning. There are still some tender annuals that haven't been killed off, but it is November, and that'll be occurring any day now.
