No Frost On A January Morning

 Yesterday morning the moon was setting and it was not quite daylight as I stopped to take this photo. There was not frost on my windshield or anywhere on the ground. It was above freezing on a January morning. I was not wearing a coat. A sweater and a light weight vest made me feel like Spring was here.
In the dim light, I could imagine green fields.
I could smell grain in the air. 
 I longed for a slow easy twilight stretching into tomorrow morning.
We have never really finished Fall. It seemed to be hiding in the darkness.
The sun was trying to peek over the horizon and I was wondering if there has ever been a January in GriggsDakota where the morning temperatures did not bring frost. 
The sky was getting brighter and the moon would soon be gone. The forecast indicates that this weather will be gone in a day or two. We are in for a reality check. 
No one can take away this day which was a golden treasure. Whatever comes next, Winter will be short in GriggsDakota.
