The old wives tale is: As soon as you hear the first cicadas it is only 90 days till the first frost. Over the past few years I have known about this I have noticed they are fairly accurate. The frost has come within a week before or after the 90 day mark on the calender. Just remember it doesn't have to be below freezing to frost :D.
Who all has had a light frost so far ? We should have had one here the other day but it was still raining and it didn't get a chance. The cicada said by Oct. 5th for us here so was just wondering if anybody has had any yet.

Nothing even close yet. Redcloud, that area around Mansfield for some reason seems like it's colder then a witch's tit. Full moons seem to increase the chances of a frost, the next is Oct. 23.
