Feel the frost: cold weather slips in
The crunch of fallen leaves underfoot signals the waning days of warm weather, a point underscored by the frost dusting the rural landscape Friday morning.

Photographer Wayne Hinshaw found this light frost near the Yadkin River in eastern Rowan. More patchy frost was forecast for this morning. Days will grow shorter, too, as daylight saving time ends Sunday.
