I listed to the weather report this evening. We're suppose to get a hard freeze tonight, throughout the mitten of Michigan's lower Peninsula. For the month of May, these are very low temperatures. Last year at this time, it was up in the 70s which is fairly comfortable. I took this picture last summer, it's an older photo.

We are having cool temperatures for this time of the year. We have a frost warning for tonight, and the next few I believe.

Yes, this is really crazy weather. I'm sure the farmers aren't happy about this!

@kobesbuddy We were out to our son's place yesterday on Lake Huron, and the farmers have corn coming up in the fields out there already.

@Juliaacv Yes, farmers in Michigan probably have crops coming up, but not very high.

I hope and pray that the hard freeze is not going to be that harsh.

@kobesbuddy I know what you mean a hard freeze will likely damage the water pipes.

@Deepizzaguy The only time a hard freeze damages water pipes, is when the bitter cold lasts over a week. During the spring, this never happens.

Does this house have a basement? If it doesn't, it must be horribly cold from the ground underneath and you must have cold feet all the time - to say nothing about the costs of heating.

We have a crawl space. Our home has a cement foundation, then five cement blocks off the ground. Our heat bills are very reasonable. @MALUSE

I'm sorry for that hard freeze. I know that I will either be going back to the garden center or forgetting having much of a summer garden.

I didn't know we were supposed to get another hard freezer last night but I did see frost on the windshield this morning. So you know whether we did get it or not?

@kobesbuddy I don't think we got a lot here either. I looked ahead a few days and even with the weather t temps coming the nights will still be cold for a bit yet.

Bundle up time and keep safe. We're going towards summer, so you'd think it'll be warmer. Is it usual weather for your area?
