Dodged one this time

This spider would not have built a web if temperatures were near freezing.

Despite dire warnings of a terrible frost over northeastern Minnesota from Cook County to Pine County here in my little frost pocket it didn’t freeze. No ice, no frost, and a low of 42 degrees. It was so warm overnight that orb weaver and funnel weaver spiders built many nests in the trees and grass. The sun came up over the trees at about 7:00 AM and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky to block any of its warming rays. By 8:00 AM the first tree crickets and ground crickets began singing, a sure prediction of a warm day. The forecast for the next few days is warm and mild. I certainly welcome more of that.

    1. Warmer temperatures are predicted. 80 by Friday but it will be cool at night. I’ve camped out in Cook County in the fall waking up to frozen coffee.

      There was a frost after all here. It a few leaves on a gourd plant. Everything else was untouched. the temp just 50 feet away was 42 deg.
