In the deep freeze...


On Dec. 3 at Quarryhill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen, this euptelea pleiosperma was completely encased in ice after some overhead sprinklers got stuck open and ran through the night. Surprisingly, most of the plants suffered little damage since ice acts as an insulator against the cold air. While not record-breaking, the recent plunge in temperatures confirms that winter has arrived. At the National Weather Service station at the Sonoma County Airport, temperatures dipped to 19 degrees on Dec. 9, and locally there were reports of frozen pipes and black ice.
