|November 29, 2011...taken at 8 a.m. (59°F.)|
November is usually a month where we, in the Northeastern part of the U.S., see a cooling down of temperatures and would have seen some snowfall by now...even if it didn't stay. However, this year, it's been a lot warmer than usual and we haven't seen more than a dusting of snow...twice. (I will not complain!)
|From our 1st snow...barely more than a dusting|
|The beginning of our next snow storm 11/17|
The next storm dumped a little more snow on us...probably about half an inch that lasted until the next day. Though it's not unusual for it to melt back off...we have in the past seen more than this for snow totals.
|A white out...you can barely see the traffic on the highway|
I looked like we were really going to get some snow...it came down hard, literally blowing in and covering everything.
It did start to accumulate on the railings on our porch and steps...
November, overall, has remained a very warm month for us, with only a few cold days that hovered around the 30°F. mark. The rest of the time, the temps have remained in the mid-to-high 40s and lower 60s.
Pretty unusual weather and I am sure the deer hunters are hating the fact that tracking any deer is pretty much out of the question! Me--I'd say that it's more sporting...giving those deer a better chance! (Sorry guys!)
With November almost done...and we are expecting snow showers tomorrow...I can only wonder what December will bring.
