First Frost of the Year and Disturbing Local Climate Change Trend

I woke up the morning to frost – the first frost of the year.  I took a couple pictures to remember this significant day.  You may think frost is not a big deal, but I beg to differ.  Frost means the morning are too cold to go for a bike ride.  It means I’m going to have to keep my garage clean so I can fit both cars.  Frost means winter is around the corner.

It’s October 18th.  Last year the first frost was Nov 11th.  Three weeks early this year!  I thought the globe was warming.  Tell that to my front yard.

And here is the frost on the car.  Fortunately it’s Sunday and we will be taking the van to church today.  If I leave the car out of the garage, there is a good chance I could be late for work.

So here’s to you “first frost of the year”:  Boooooooooooo!,  Go back where you came from! You are not wanted! 

On a separate note, we need to promote global warming.  Take measures locally to help keep our globe warm.  Remember to act locally and think globally.   This year the first frost came 3 weeks early just wait until 2024.

I did a scientific study of climate change at my intersection and found a disturbing trend.  As you can see from the chart below, if this early frost trend continues our first frost of 2013 will be on June 20th. 

The doomsday scenario will play out in 2023 where the first frost for 2024 will be October 23rd, 2023 - an entire year before!   This will be the the first time in the history of the earth (since we began collecting data in 2008) that the temperatures have flipped like this.  Contact your congressman and change your light bulbs – now.

  1. Dear God, the first frost in June. Now that is something that should be avoided at all costs! I hope everyone starts to get "global warming" educated.
    Our first frost came last week. I'm not happy. I like fall, but not the first frost. It means winter is coming faster than I want it to. I'm glad next week is bringing temps in the 60s in my neck of the woods. I wonder if this is my "Indian Summer?"
