Our morning started off cold and foggy with hoar frost forming on the trees, but the sun broke out about mid-day and gave us a warm afternoon (a high of 36ºF or 2ºC).

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,500 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
