Ginnie BakerIt’s October 6, and we’ve had the strangest October weather for so early in fall.

Saturday, I got up and discovered ice on my deck! I didn’t realize it had rained overnight but evidently it rained enough to freeze.

I knew it was cold overnight but I didn’t think it was THAT cold!

October weather: ice on the deck! 



As the day progressed, we were treated to several rounds of ice balls pounding on the roof and making a horrid noise as it hit the metal barn and roof. It rapidly accumulated on the ground and the deck.
