It's been a year of weather extremes. Last Winter we saw more snow than we've seen in a long time. The Spring was wet and cold. Summer took forever to get here and then we had extreme heat. Now it's the 6th of November and we haven't had a heavy frost yet. My Stella D'Oro lilies are putting out new blooms. My neighbor's rose bushes have roses. The people with persimmon trees say the seeds are showing spoons, which is supposed to be a forecaster for lots of snow. I've seen very few caterpillars crossing the road. And I've only seen one or two days of "Indian Summer" where the spider-webs ribbon through the air. Normally that's a week or two occurrence. It's just been a very weird year. I would like to be able to say "it keeps things interesting", but I'm not sure it is!
