Alberta Clipper

It's coming. Within the next few days. It may actually bring our yearly low in Central New York. What am I talking about? Why, the low-pressure system sometimes called the 'Alberta Clipper', infamous for chilling any garden in its path. Accuweather.com claims that our coldest will be 0 or -1 degrees on Thursday. Of course this can change at any time, but hovering around 0 is still comfortably within zone 6. Hopefully this will be our low for this winter (I believe last winter's low was -4 degrees Fahrenheit for Syracuse). It doesn't appear that we're going to get our 70 degree January day this year! Oh well, I'd just be happy with another zone 6 winter.
