How low will it go?

It seems to be the talk of the town - or at least here in the office and at the Martinez Dollar General, where I bought a bright red knit cap today.

It's the cold weather approaching us. The National Weather Service says we could get down to a low of 19 Thursday night and a bone-chilling 9 on Friday night.

If reached, the low of 9 would break the record by two degrees for the area for Friday. The record for that day is 11, set in 1977.
With that in mind, what do you say we try to record how low it will go throughout the area?

Just post below the low you measure at your house Thursday and Friday night, detailing your location, the time and the degree. And if you've got a camera handy Friday or Saturday morning, how about snapping a photo of any ice you see (say water frozen from a sprinkler system that was accidentally left on).

You can e-mail photos to me at and I'll post them for all to see.

By the way, not sure if

By the way, not sure if anyone has seen or heard this, but on Thursday the National Weather Service was calling for a chance of sprinkles mixing into flurries for Augusta Sunday night. The weather service's Web site states sprinkles could occur before 3 a.m. that night and then flurries could follow. A low of about 31 has been predicted for Sunday night. We'll see if the prediction holds.

I saw one frozen lawn this

I saw one frozen lawn this morning, made me wish I had my camera. Someone obviously left the sprinklers on, because every lawn in the rest of the neighborhood was dry. Couldn't help but laugh.
