Frost – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, something is wrong with the world. There is cold white stuff all over the ground. Clean it up.

Me:  That’s just frost. Our first frost this season.

Stella:  It is cold, and it is making my toesies wet.

Me:  It won’t last long. Once the sun hits It and the temperature rises, it will disappear.

Stella:  Are you being lazy?

Me:  Not this time. It will disappear on its own. I’ll bet you don’t remember, but the day before you came to us, we had a big snowfall, big for us that is. Inches deep and it stayed around for a day. Frost is nothing compared to snow. And that was the last snow we’ve seen since then. Maybe we’ll see some this winter.

Stella:  And it covered the ground?

Me:  Yup.

Stella:  And it was cold and wet?

Me:  Yup.

Stella:  And it was way deeper?

Me:  Yup.

Stella:  Nope. You can keep that stuff to yourself.
