A cold spell

It has gotten cold and rainy the past few days. It is also windy, not at all unusual in Mercer County. There is also a threat of frost. Well, actually no official source is predicting a frost. It should come close to but not touch forty degrees tonight, according to the Internet. Still, the guy sitting in the bar a few stools up from me pronounced "we're gonna have a frost". The true arbiter of truth: The news on TV? The New York Times? Yahoo? Or what men say in bars.

Looks like an old co-worker of mine got some seeds from Rutgers and gave them to her mother. Looks like we should get pictures from Texas, Cape May, and now, Jersey City. Should be an interesting year for Ramapo tomatoes. ... If the frost doesn't get'em.
