Winter Arrives

It has been years since we had a November so warm and mild; we have been running around in shirt sleeves or light jackets, enjoying the last of the fall sunshine. All that changed last night, when winter finally arrived with high winds (Livingston had gusts to 80 mph) and 3-4 inches of heavy wet snow. This morning was warming and the snow was melting nicely, but this afternoon a cold wind came up and it got much nastier than the coat I was wearing was good for; the snow streaming off the roofs looked like snow coming off the ridge in January. I doubt this snow is here to stay, but winter has finally shown up.
