We got a big one on the hilltop where I live in Ellicott City this morning. It took a lot of heavy scraping to get my truck windows free of ice at 6:00 this morning.

I'm afraid to go look at my leaf lettuce...

Wow, we only had a light frost here 18 mi west of Frederick.

Patapscomike, your lettuce was just fine huh? Most varieties of lettuce can survive and thrive in temps in the mid to upper 20's. With some protection it'll do you even better than that.

I spoke too soon about my lettuce, most of it- except what was tucked under some carrot greens, got burned. I should have thrown something on top of it... It's just some leaf lettuce- red sails and oak leaf and black seeded simpson. Not very tough stuff compared to other lettuce varieties.

Out in Westminster, the Knockout Rose is still blooming, in an above ground pot yet. The tropical foliage bit the dust a while back, but the rootstocks are still OK - I dug up cannas today and brought in the tropical waterlilies.

In Baltimore City, I still see impatiens blooming, although a bit shabbily, right next to some buildings!
