Record snow and cold in Nebraska/Iowa
It is now snowing here in Cedar Rapids. This is very unusual. If we get any accumulation on the grass it will be an all-time record earliest snow. My garden salvias are already dead from the overnight freeze. Tonight is forecast to be 10 degrees colder as temps dip down into the upper teens, breaking another record. As ridiculous as it is here, over in Omaha, Nebraska they have received an insane 6 inches of snow this morning. I've never heard of anything like this in early October.
UPDATE: My regular female hummer has not been seen this morning, but a juvie male just stopped to drink at the feeder. It is very strange to see a hummer at the feeder while snow is falling.
