Apparently, it was the first white Christmas in Atlanta since 1882. The humans were unable to get to the compost pile, but things kept right on going on as usual under the plastic tarp even in temperatures that dipped into the teens outside.
A trip to Starbucks to grab some coffee grounds and we were able to add another 50 pounds of mass to the pile. The average temperature at center remains approximately 120 degrees. If the weather holds, we will go into phase II tomorrow with the separation into the next pile, all the while continuing with the first pile.
