October weather in Minnesota was miserable. It was cold, gray and dreary. We had about a dozen flurries or light snowfalls. Indian summer became just a warm memory or years past. Tough Minnesotans hunkered down for a lllooonnngggg winter.
Then came November, AKA the new October. It warmed up. The sun came out. Life was good again. This is the second warmest November on record. There is hope because winter didn't start Oct 1st.
I failed to heed the first clue that this was going to be a topsy-turvey season. My calendar hanging on the frig has no month of November. It goes from October to December. No November on the calendar and we had no November weather. Next year when I buy a calendar I may rip out December too. Do you think that would work?
