I don't think I can remember a year in the past 20 here at the coast where it's snowed so early (or late in the year). Usually it's later in december or more often, january, but here we are and it's not even thanksgiving yet!
I wonder if this means it will be a hard winter? Last year we had a very cold period at the beginning of december but it didn't get that cold again until late in january...so it's anyone's guess!
(yea, I know you folks in the less temperate places are laughing to think that 33 degrees is cold, but hey....we love our moderate temps and we do "pay" for them with abundant rain, lol!)
