On Friday we had the winter’s first hard frost in the city.
I say this based on my observation of the plants in Schenley Park. Prior to December 1 we’d had some lightly frosty mornings and one big snowfall in late October, but no frost so hard that the plants broke under it. Some non-native species continued to bloom.
On Friday the plants broke. On Saturday the frost peristed until the sun turned it into swirling steam.
Winter is officially here.
