Either way, the temps may dip down below 30 this weekend. So bring in those tender plants.

If I pull all my green tomatoes off the plant will they turn red inside the house? I assume they will all die otherwise in this cold. I pulled a red one off the plant today.

They should. However if they are TOO immature they may not. The bigger they are or the closer to maturity they are, the more likely they are to turn red.

I hope that back in Alexandria it does not get TOO cold because I still have some tenders outside there that I am going back to pick up on Sunday. Long as it stays above freezing they should be just fine.

Fall Little League has been a bust this season, that's for sure. Between the flooding, generally rainy days, and now rain/snow, I've lost track of how many have been postponed and rescheduled.

The snow is falling fast and hard over here in Winchester. Looks like 2-3" already. Anyone on the roads out here: please be careful! I am not sure how well the roads are plowed.

As for me, already bought tons of groceries as well as the Halloween candy yesterday. Took the 2 snow shovels out from the carriage house and have the rock salt in the basement.

Summer plants including the palm trees all brought in too.

Meh, it's not doing anything in Manassas but rain. I've seen it snow in late October before, but not in NoVa. Anyway, I LOVE winter, snow, etc! I am excited for the snow.
