This October was a bit unprecedented for weather, at least in my personal East Coast experience over the past eight or nine years.
It snowed the night of October 27. In the morning I took a few photos:
It was just a light dusting, but still... snow before Halloween!
And if that wasn't enough, we got a more significant snowstorm on the 29th/30th:
My poor chrysanthemums were crushed!
Some people on the news were calling it "Snowtober," but I think that's ridiculous. If you must create a word mash-up, "Ocsnowber" would be much better.
