Hard Freeze Warning tonight and tomorrow morning 1/12 & 1/13
Protect tender plants by covering before the sun goes down - this may save them, but when the temps are this cold, covering does not always work.  Bring plants in pots into the garage.  With the rain yesterday, we at least have moisture in the ground.
