December certainly got off to a freezing start. After the last round of cold weather finished we had a welcome thaw, and temperatures even reached the dizzy heights of plus 6 degrees. Nice! Now we are back to the cold again, and it is here with a vengeance! A few nights ago, the temperature dropped to -12 degrees. This is colder than anything I've experienced in my gardening to date.
Yesterday morning, I woke up to find a fresh covering of snow had fallen overnight. In fact, we had almost 8 inches on the lawn!
Woodbury looked picturesque under its fresh covering. Despite the problems that the snow brings for many, it is hard not to appreciate it's beauty. Who knows what other surprises the rest of the winter may bring?
