After a particularly unusual and even sometimes distressing summer, winter seemed to have come about like a sledgehammer around the middle of October.

Most of these sites have soil and air temperature loggers installed and some sites also have iButton temperature loggers attached to the lower scutes of the turtle's carapace.
