It got up into the 50s today. Where’s winter? There’s no snow in sight.
A heavy hoarfrost this morning covered roofs and fields with the thinnest coat of white. When the sun came up, it vanished in minutes. By early afternoon, winter insects were flying. My brother Steve hiked up the hollow and reported seeing a strange species of fly with red eyes.
It’s hard to believe a new year is right around the corner.
