We had a hard freeze the night of the third. If you look closely, you can see icicles on this fountain. It was predicted to stay bitterly cold and the owner assured me that the icicles would be even larger the next day.

I sure am glad I sleep with a heating pad, but I’m thinking on nights like that, an electric blanket could keep my feet AND my hands warm, instead of me having to choose like I do now!
