It's Chilly in the Northwoods

The clock has just passed midnight making it officially May 31.  And the temperature outside along the Gordon / St. Croix Flowage is a brisk 34 degrees!

It was 85 degrees when I drove up two days ago.  The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning:
Twenty six?  Yikes!  I had come up to plant the tomatoes, peppers, okra and a few other vegetables.  I only got part of the job done before the cooling trend showed up.  I'll wait another day.  Meanwhile, here is a picture of the garden.

I hope that the tarps are adequate.

Things could be worse - much worse.  Here is a newspaper clipping from 1948 on display up at the Gordon Historical Society.
