As I often do, I went outside to refill the bird feeders on the deck just before going to bed.
We had a misting rain earlier in the evening.
I didn't fall, but the deck was extremely slippery.
When I came back inside I checked, and yes, it's 28F at the moment.
I thought had hoped, that we were done with freezing.
At least I hadn't put any plants outside yet.

... and now I will go to bed.

Hmmmmmmmmm - 2 ...,

I just looked out my kitchen window.
There's blue sky and sunshine to the left over the ridge.
To the right, it's fairly gray.
On my deck there are little white things about the size of a pea.
I looked twice and realized that it was sleet or hail.

I'm going back to bed.
Wake me when it's 80F
