A Warm November Day




We are having unusually warm, dry weather this week after 3 weeks of rain. I couldn’t bring myself to stay inside so I went for several walks.

There is a nature preserve called Clear Creek Forest about 20 miles from our house.

There were dandelions in bloom, butterflies and even a frog or two. The creek was running clear and the sky was a gentle blue.

A pure delight. The weather forecast is for freezing temperatures this weekend.

Ric - very warm today and I bet there would have been some commas out here also if I had been around to look! Looks like you had a great day!

I saw a butterfly a few days ago, and I thought I was hallucinating.
And on my walks, I am hearing crickets. What the...? Do they not know December is coming???

I did Tom
They will find out Friday Susan. Supposed to go below freezing.

Which side of the cold front are you on today? I woke up to 7 degrees F this morning!

The wrong side. Just above freezing and rain. 2inches over night.
Just missed the blizzard.
