Let's be honest - I've suspected this was coming for about a week now. The extended forecast was showing the green dew point line would be down below freezing tonight, while the low temp was never supposed to get below about 42. Then 40. Then 38. See where this is going? But never down to the freezing point. Still, the dew point was always below freezing...
And then this morning I woke up to the frost advisory for tonight.
Funny thing - early this morning I saw the map of advisory alerts, and noticed we were in the western most counties to have risk of frost (we sit in the middle of Portage county - look for the red dot down in the second image). I was thinking, hey, maaaaaybe since we're at the edge we won't get the frost.

And now the advisory map looks like this - the area at risk of frost has extended westward so, yup, we're engulfed!

I need to take pics - I have cherries and plums bigger than I recall ever having before!
