Frost on July 11

Palousitics contributor Mattwi finally sent along these pictures of his car on the morning of July 11, 2008.

As you can see, the temperature in Colton that morning was 33 degrees Fahrenheit.

The official low temperature at Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport was 35 degrees, a record low for July 11. The following morning saw record lows as well. The Whitman County Gazette reported that the 33 degrees temperature at the airport was the lowest ever for July 12. The Gazette reported that crops and gradens were damaged by the unprecedented late freeze.

The ravages of global warming continue on the Palouse.

WooHoo.. I'm famous.. LOL

I was chatting with a friend who is a farmer in the area and he stated that some of their crops in our area didn't fair to well in the frost either.

This might explain why wasp control calls are practically non-existent for me this summer.
