I think that the frost has settled in for winter. For two weeks now it has covered the ranches of the trees, and slowly hardened and grown. Today, while walking the dogs, I saw a branch(?) as thin as a vein. It looked glossy, and wet, but it was like steel when I tried to bend it. The frost didn't crack, it flexed slightly, and had penetrated the bark and forced itself inbetween the fibers of the wood. This winter is goinng to be brittle. The localscan put away their chainsaws, and knock down trees by fracturig blows from hammmers.
