The snow came early and covered my wife's flowers and LED flame torches.

Sure is pretty though  ;)  We don't have much on the ground, just the cold the past couple weeks.

Would have liked to have mulched my leaves one more time but they were still on the tree. Guess I'll have to take the rider out one morning while the ground is still frozen if we don't get anymore snow before then  :D

Looks like you had more snow that us - we just had about four inches but it's been really cold. Had some thoughts about plowing the snow off the outdoor railway track and seeing some pretty steam from the engines but the more I thought about it the colder I got and finally gave it up.
Regards,
Larry

Larry, isn't that what R/C is for?  ;)

And Carl, a video of your 50 out in that snow would sure be a pretty site  8)

Somehow mid-November doesn't seem any to "early" for snow in Michigan ... or is it?

In southeast Michigan the snowfall was 9.2 inches Monday night, more than doubling the 1984 record of 4.1 inches, and setting the new record for November, surpassing the previous monthly total of 6.2 inches in 1925.
So for November, this is a record for this part of Michigan for this month and we could get more snow any day.

We got this in southern Ontario, Canada, on the night of November 6-7, and since then we've had nighttime temperatures as low as -19 degrees Celsius or about 0 Fahrenheit.

Very early. Not fun.

Where is global warming when we need it?
