this is November

Looking southeast on a sunny and mild Sunday morning, 7th November

Looking northeast two days later (today) after a fierce rain and windstorm blew through around noon, after which some clouds lifted just enough to reveal a heavy dusting of snow on the mountains. It was decidedly chilly out this afternoon. Tonight’s temperature is forecast to drop near freezing. There are still some unprotected plants outdoors. The days are suddenly too short. Winter seems too close. Does time seem to move faster when we’re on the last pages on the calendar?
