When I took the dogs out yesterday morning it felt like it was snowing, even though I knew it was just misty out....but I had a feeling it was snowing up at the mountain and obviously later confirmed.

Cold 28 here but it's a beautiful morning. Our colors are past peak but still pretty with the sun rising.

All stations in Vermont reported below freezing this morning..


Here's a look at some stations in Vermont sorted by lowest temp in the state.. Cool link to keep! Air = Current temp. 20s to 50s today.


Morrisville was the coldest at 25. Because these are airport sites I'm sure some suburbs were colder around them.









Another link that shows the lows on the map. Scroll down.

So... now that we got this 1-2 day cold blast out of the way........ Enjoy Spring next 6 days...


Next week its possible we start the pattern of winter. lol... Well... maybe Late Fall instead. Looks like we'll be changing patterns after Tuesday next week where there will be more cold shots than warm ups. We'll see.

I can't complain. September and October have been quite fantastic. I'm hoping it won't really snow til Thanksgiving though, so I can actually get some yard work done ha ha. All this nice weather has me outside, but not doing what I'm supposed to be doing!

That's funny you said that... I'm usually getting buckets of kindling ready by now but I haven't yet. I did bring some firewood closer to house but only 1 side. Usually bring some to deck but haven't needed the stove yet (till today). Also... usually raking leaves by now but how do I do that with leaves still on the trees....and green!

I'm trying to finish a brick chimney before winter hits, plus some roofing work, so I hope it holds off a little longer. So far the freezes in the village avoided me on the mountain but I doubt my luck holds out much longer. I still have live sweet potato plants in my garden.

Seems like you definitely have through this weekend to get some work done....which is what I keep telling myself too. Meanwhile I'm making plans to hike, and bike, and everything but get the work done lol!!!

My basil finally succumbed to the frost last night - it made it through the first two soft frosts....so it's finally time to shut the garden down. That will have to make it on the to-do list.

When do your leaves usually start coming down?

Those are some tough potatoes to survive the 30s. Maybe the cold wasn't long enough to damage them? You must be in a sheltered spot to protect you from the freezes?

Haha. Add it to the "soon to do list". I don't blame you. Enjoy the hikes and bike rides! Nice week for it. Warm sun and cool nights.



They start turning colors between August 25-Sept 5.
They reach peak between October 15-25.
They're pretty much all down by early-mid November.


Things happen fast but we are running about 3 weeks late now. I mean it looks like September still.


You wanna see crazy? Check out West Virginia vs Connecticut.


And some pics I took today from this area including a comparison one from my roof.
