When you see a headline like: First Frost By State: Massachusetts my first reaction would be, are you kidding? Summer’s over? Add to that, when I get the frost prediction email from Old Farmers Almanac, it occurs to me: great, I am now my Dad. The Weather Channel is at the top of my saved shows list? Good grief! (See, I even got in a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown reference.)
Fall Has It’s Good Points
Hey, who has ever said a bad thing about the pumpkin spice season? No one. Fall, is one of the many wonderful things about living in New England.

2) Look Forward To New Years Resolutions, We Didn’t Commit To, This Year
1) For 30 Days We Have A Low Electric Bill!
Old Farmers Almanac
I recently signed up to receive the Old Farmers Almanac. Each day, I find in my IN box, a variety of tips, ideas and recipes, all wonderful things I have zero time for, now. Hey, can’t I make time to make bacon wrapped roasted brussel sprouts? Why don’t I want to know how to plant shallots, for this fall? How DO YOU care for Hellebore Flowers. (I must know someone, who knows what a Hellebore Flower is.) These wonderful questions and more can be found now, in my daily in box.
The First Frost
One item, that got my attention from my Daily Almanac email, was the date of New England’s first frost. This tidbit does affect many.
So, now that we are equipped and ready to face the chilly music, let’s go find the First Frost By State!
