My kids are unpredictable as I don't have any idea when they will come for Christmas. To be prepared, I went to get the turkey out of the freezer so it could be thawing in the fridge. The first thing I grabbed was a package of jerky that just didn't feel right. Upon further inspection, the freezer has died. Lucky, I went to get that turkey. Most everything was still frozen.
Of course, it is an old freezer and probably just died though I wonder is the 15' F has anything to do with it.
Now I know when the kids are coming. We bought a new freezer that they will pickup today and bring to us.
im in zone 8a, too, and its slightly warmer than usual this year so far, but we had a cold snowy winter last year. Something unusual- had a single rose bloom in December. Very strange. Its not that warm! And this was in our cold (30's) streak!
Never seen something like it before. I call it "Winter Rose"

Another happening that I forgot to mention is that some critter dug up my coffee grounds and ate the whole 3 gallons of it. I have been putting 3 gallon batches in the garden since 2016 and nothing has ever eaten before!
