Cold Front




A cold front blew in last night and the temperature this morning is only a bit above freezing. I took these pictures late yesterday afternoon on my way to a friend's house. If you look closely at the bottom photo you'll see that it's a cotton field below the cold, wild sky.

  3. I thought it was a field of snow balls the cold front dropped. Keep warm.

  4. I thought it was a field of frosty plants! I'm glad to know it's just cotton balls. (I didn't even realize South Carolina still grew much cotton.)

  8. It is colder here too, 61 F predicted for the day and 50 at night. It feels like autumn now. Your photos capture the mood of a cold day, nice how you capture the cotton.

  9. Thanks for pointing out that that is a cotton field, I am always interested in what grows and what it looks like in other lands. I would guess that frost in cotton fields is rare and would not be good, so I hope the temperature does not drop below freezing. Good photographs. Thanks.

    1. Frost never seems to hurt cotton plants, and the cotton is always harvested this time of year. I think the field in my picture had already been harvested once (by machine of course) and the cotton you see there is what's left over.

  11. It was 43 degrees this morning. We thought we would freeze to death. We're turning into real Floridians.

    Love,

    1. Haha! Floridians can't handle the cold. Neither can a lot of South Carolinians!

  12. We got the wild weather last night also. However, it only lasted till 9 am and the sun came out and the day got warmer. It is almost November so colder days will be upon us soon.

    1. I like cold weather. The last few winters have been ridiculously mild here in South Carolina.

  13. Fall and winter at least make for really dramatic skies.
