Frosts 2014

Unread post by Richard »

I was wondering if my area would get through this summer with no frosts,but no,not this one,this morning there's frost on the car at +1deg and interestingly the gauge just off the ground in amoung the clover says +2.5deg.In thirteen years living here there's only been one three month period with no frosts and that was the summer of 2011-12 which was very cloudy&cool
