Fall has arrived in full force, with almost-freezing temps every morning and jacket weather during the day. We had our first snow on October 7th, which was way too early for my tastes, but nothing since. Many of the trees are still green and fully-leafed, so I’m not sure what that means.
The weather patterns are disturbingly different year after year. We were still having snow in May this year and June was the rainiest month in my recollection. The Snowbird ski resort remained open for skiing until July 4th (probably not the best of skiing that late, but certainly an abundance of snow allowed bragging rights).
“Summer” lasted a scant 2-1/2 months and we reached 100 degrees F exactly once.
Beautiful and dramatic leaf colors changes in the mountains this fall probably stem from the abundance of precipitation.
I’m hoping that snow is scant at least until December, but won’t be surprised at any outcome.
