It seems October and November made a switch this year. What an amazing shift in weather! The month of October, with its 12.49" precip total, under average temperatures, and even some snow to the upper midwest, gave way to the most pleasant beginning to November I can remember. The past 9 days have simply been a delight. We have enjoyed dry weather, sunny skies, and above-average temps every day so far.
We have gone 11 days now without any measurable precipitation, which is the first time since February 25th of this year. With a 40% chance of showers today, we might be able to extend this dry spell even longer.
I don't mind, as long as it gets cold and nasty by the time deer season rolls around.
