Or: A mid-panic moment of zen. Take it all in (Feel free to click the photo to enlarge). This was our one blissful moment between frenzied crop covering and panicked fear of "Did we cover enough to protect against the first frost?"
This shot was taken at 7PM on September 16th. Clear skies had helped the temperature drop 15°F during the last hour of daylight to a chilly 40°F. The news suggested some areas might see light frost... By morning we realized some areas had seen a good freeze.
