Interesting that it says nothing about Nov. This is the warmest Nov I can remember. Last year we had snow by this time and it didn't leave until April!

Somewhere on the site I did read that we could get a snowstorm around Thanksgiving. I sure hope not as I am actually enjoying this delayed cold weather. I still have tropicals on the front porch.
