We were covered in snow this morning, not deep, but darn sure turned everything white. Broke some tree branches.
SE Montana got 5" of the white stuff.


There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Beautiful morning here today. Absolutely stunning.
Hard freeze last night and sunshine today. Hoping for a long Indian Summer.

Des Moines airport had 4 inches of rain the first two days of the month and more heavy expected this weekend. Not ready for winter!

It was in the mid-90's here Thursday, but a front blew in yesterday and it's in the mid-30's this morning. That's pretty darn cold for us for the first half of October. Fall is my favorite time of year, so it figures that we'll miss it completely by going straight from summer into winter. LOL

How's it going for the rest of you? I'm sure some of you are probably dealing with some real winter weather compared to what I'm griping about, right?

East of us in North Dakota and Manitoba got a couple feet of snow. Pretty rough out that way.

Cold and windy here for this early I the fall, below normal temps for sure.

Friends of ours who live in OK...their daughter was born there, she is 4 years old. It got cold there too.
Little girl went out the door, stopped and said, "I SMELL COLD." :lol:

If she wants to really smell cold she could head north....she's a pistol... :D

We got down to 34° one morning, but were lucky to dodge a frost. I know that doesn't seem cold to a lot of you, but that's close to a record low for us this early in the year.

37 days since my last post and still no rain.Nobody has planted Winter wheat here and won't even think about it until there's some measurable rainfall.Usually guys that are going to run cattle on wheat thru the Winter will have it up by now.I'd bet lots of cattle will hit the sale barns around soon.Looks as if I'll thin my older cows out some.Sure do hate to get rid of some good cows.

We are 3 degrees this morning, cold for November.

Seems like we have had a month and a half of winter already,

We been in the 50s for highs and in the single digits at night. Mountain has dusting of snow on the north slopes. Sure has been a fine fall so far on the desert.
