Freezing weekend in Anthem

Well its mid-Jan­u­ary and its freez­ing here.  Not that unusu­al for the desert but still comes as a bit of a shock.  The tem­per­a­ture fell to around 27F last night and we had to cov­er all the vul­ner­a­ble plants.  Man­aged to buy some sheets from the Good­will store and used there as cov­ers.  Seems to work­ing real­ly well.

Our pond frozen
Our pond frozen

For the first time in 5 years our gar­den pond has frozen sol­id.  The cold snap is expect­ed to con­tin­ue until Tuesday–roll on the warmer weath­er!
