November 21. We got into the 60's yesterday. It's not unknown - in fact our record high for yesterday (73) was set during a year I lived here. But it is not that usual to have a partially sunny day - usually a mild day in November would include rain and/or lots of gloom.
Today, the weather is supposed to be cooler but still a bit unseasonable.
Many times, we have snow on the ground by the beginning of November. So when I see Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations while experiencing mild temperatures and no snow on the ground, it can be very disorienting. Things aren't exactly the way they are supposed to be - although mind you, I am not complaining.
When I did my Garden Bloggers Bloom Day back on November 15 I thought I had no flowers blooming. Boy, was I wrong! Nature is trying to spring back while it can.
Sometimes, New York can pay a heavy price for mild Novembers. Let's hope that is not the case this year.
