Frost on the Pumpkin!
Well, actually, I did not see frost on a pumpkin. I have no pumpkin. I did see frost on Mr. Nitro's windshield, however! The low last evening was 31°! Yikes! Fortunately, it is sunny and clear, and there is no wind. It is forecast to be in the upper 60s and low-to-mid 70s throughout the balance of the week. I will enjoy that.
