Snow is not unheard of in October, but it is unusual. November is much more normal. Last year we had our first snow storm in December. Usually we don't get any accumulation if we do get October snow. For Boston the snowiest October had a grand total of 0.4 inches of snow. My little hill has a strange microclimate. My first fall frost is usually about a week or two later than the first frost at the bottom of the hill, but I will often get snow when that area is still getting rain. I will be getting to my real post soon, but I couldn't help but share more of the weird weather we have been having this year.
