November is Here

November is finally upon us. This month often signifies the true transition from dry summer weather to wet winter weather in California. The transition has made itself apparent: we've had over 2 inches of rain in the past few days. Since rain saturates the colors in leaves, moss, and other materials, I went on a hike while it was raining. I got this picture of maple leaves and a rock poking above the surface in a soon-to-be-flowing streambed.

Anyone else having major weather changes?

We have been having weather swings. Last week we had a hard freeze, temps in the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's, snow, sleet, freezing rain, rainy days, and sunny days. Sounds like Ohio weather.

Nope, not yet. We are still sunny and dry. Perfect gardening weather after we got a bit of rain a week or so ago. But it is wet season here too.

We have had a major cold spell in the last little while. The coldest night with the wind chill was -10c(14f). We have had a couple flakes of snow with areas around use getting a good amount of snow.

I have been out a couple times to take pictures when we have had thick frost. The fall leaves drop really fast when they are frost laden. Very nice setting to be in.

Leaves are falling here in NJ but it's still fairly warm. This coming week it will be in the mid 60's during the day. No frost yet...go figure.
