We went from wet to freezing overnight the other night, from flooding to frozen. The new year launched with the coldest night yet, 18 degrees F (7 C.). It gets cold like this when the skies are clear. This gives us frost, not snow.
It snows here when freezing precipitation travels south from the Frazer River Valley in British Columbia. So far it’s kept the snow to itself. But it’s certainly cold enough to bundle up.
