It got about as cold as it gets here this past weekend, which isn't very, but is enough for there to be for-real ice on things and to feel the wind snap though the windows in my old house. This is far too early for such a cold spell here, unseasonable since it should still be in the 60s. I don't know what it means but it did make me want to put some more syrup on my bees in case this indicates a rough winter.

There was even snow, or a few flakes that the local media called snow, not really even warranting the name flurry, a tiny fluttering of nothingness, that nevertheless was enough for the Elizabeth City, NC schools to close. That is always amusing.

The cold weather also brought out the elusive pink bear, a creature best observed in our local park.
