Just a suggestion by Dave. It was 3 degrees last night in a few places in the UK so sub zero could happen any time.

Kata, the topic Kris referred to is started for people to report their first air frost and should only have one post per member when they get their FIRST FROST ONLY . THIS TOPIC is for people to discuss the frosts and their near misses, or subsequent frosts :wink:
Best regards
Dave
