Cold Morning

The rhododendron leaves are huddling close together this morning. As it warms they go back to their usual perky selves, It's cold on the mountain. Not a bitter cold but with the temps in the teens, brisk. So far the weather on our side of Groundhog Mountain has been better than areas right down the road. It seems there are many micro-climates around here. We are sheltered here in winter with the mountain rising to the north behind the house. Nasty weather predicted for this PM, "freezing rain", the dreaded "i" word.
We had ice storms in Baltimore. There was the time after doing a 180 in the car trying to come up the hill to our house and going around the square to approach from the other end of the street stopping beside the empty parking space the car slid horizontally into the space. (note to Dave: work on sentence construction) Then I had to crawl across the street over the inch or so of ice to get to the house.

The Rhody leaves will do that, droop when it gets cold. Does it here too. They're sure a party pooper.
