Re: 25 year zone-defining cold snap in some of Mid-south
Those are some crazy cold temps.
I fortunately have moved to a spot in Nova Scotia that is experiencing one of the warmest Winters I've ever seen. We are categorized as a solid zone 6B. Our property is 12 km inland from the ocean, sheltered from the wind, because it's a bowl shaped Valley on a south-facing slope. Currently in the sunshine it's 33 f or one Celsius.
The coldest we've got at night in the last few days has been 10 f, minus 11 c.
I feel for everyone experiencing these extreme cold temperatures that can definitely ruin some of their Garden investments. Seems we're the anomaly
