Sudden Winter

After the warmest October on record we had a severe and sudden cold snap, the earliest in our 20 years here.  The leaves are still on the trees.   It's been in the high twenties, which is cold for Portland.  It was also really windy and mighty unpleasant.  The wind has subsided but the cold remains.

These photos were taken yesterday from inside the house.  I haven't ventured out much except to help with dragging pots to safer places.

Here you can see the quilt batting strips I stuff in the back door crack when it is really really cold and windy.

The back yard, coated with ice.

Leaves still on the trees...

We brought the phormium in from the cold.

I didn't think the cold had hit your area. We got up to 28 today, very early for it to be this cold.
