Here's the thermometer on my deck at 1:30 this afternoon.
And for my friends and family in California and other warm and sunny locales, this video is for you!
So, the weatherman was right--we have gone from "awesome to awful" in the same weekend! Just for the record, this is not the earliest snowfall we've ever had in October. According to my nature diary, in 2006 we had snow flurries on October 11th. October is an interesting month as far as weather goes.....according to my diary we've also had tornado watches, severe thunderstorms and have used the air conditioner and furnace in the same week!
Now if you'll excuse me please, I have to go start the fireplace!
