It's 3 degrees (F) here at the moment, with a high of 9 predicted (and overnight low this evening of minus-3). Then, it looks like, temperatures will moderate a little.
The cold creeps in around the edges no matter what these early mornings, so I've got a woven coverlet from the Amana mills wrapped around my shoulders.
And I've been looking at spring flowers from seasons past, including these blue bells photographed early last May on a west-facing slope above the South Chariton River valley south of Cambria.
It'll be a while before they consider blooming again --- but it will happen; and the cold will pass. In the meantime, wrap up a little tighter and stay warm.
