The roughly 6 inches of snow came as somewhat of a surprise. On the other hand, it is December and December usually means snow at some point in the month. Raise your hand if you didn’t get all the leaves raked up before the snow. My hand is in the air.
It is almost Thanksgiving and each day people tell me that they can’t believe that November is almost over. Yet the leaves haven’t fallen off the oak trees and in many yards the leaves are still sitting on the lawn.
My guess is that we found out that it can be very cold in November. Not just cold temperatures, but record cold temperatures. The cold temperatures that we had killed off the rest of your annual flowers and any of your remaining vegetable plants.
October is slowly rolling to a close. The temperatures have been abnormally warm so we all have been lulled into a sense of late summer. But we all know (or deny) that November can be a bear when it comes to weather.
