We had our first noticeable snowfall two weeks ago, a wet sloppy snow 
that melted off the next day. But it has been otherwise an 
exceptional warm September-early October. The trees just recently 
shed their leaves, but they had turned a dingy brown by then -- they 
are usually still golden when they fall to the first frost, which was 
the second latest on record.

But Michaelmas Feast is this weekend (I know, the date is off, but 
it's our tradition), and we expect permanent snow by the end of the 
weekend, as usually happens 8 out of 10 years.

Of course, we live considerably more North than most of you.
