Wow - things really got frosty in Cookeville based on that photo!

;-)

When you are outside your home with a flashlight...just before daylight...squating down looking for frost...what do you think the neighbors would be thinking? "Hey honey, come here and look at Eddie. What is he doing?" I can't imagine the true answer "looking for frost" would really help. In fact, when I think about it, there really isn't an answer that would cause the neighbors to say, "oh, well, that's a good idea!" They would never get it! So I look for frost this morning and at observation there was NONE. By the way, it appeared most of the neighbors were still asleep...in their WARM beds!!

Michael - have a great day on the Plateau! - Eddie

Hey Eddie....we have plenty of frost up here for you. I've got 35° on my weather station. Pretty sure others went even lower than that!
