Fall marches on

Here we are in the middle of November already. We've had a couple of cold spells, but they were short lived. Mild weather and very little wind have been the rules for a while. Fall often brings high pressure that parks itself in the middle of France causing temperature inversions. In other words, still and foggy days.

A vineyard parcel at sunrise a couple of weeks ago. The grape leaves are mostly gone now.

We don't get harsh winters, and recent winters have been unusually mild. It's normal for it to snow a little, usually in late January and in February, but it doesn't last very long. I hope we get some snow this year. It's pretty and the cold weather is good for the environment.


  1. I'm sure the grapes do better with a colder winter. It was the coldest November day here for fifteen years, 13.8 degrees. Our average daily high temperature for November is 22.

  2. The light is charming. It’s already 19C here and going up to low 20s today. It’s spring again...

  3. When I was a kid, it never occurred to me that there were ups and downs in the type of weather each season would bring, year by year.

  4. Beautiful colors in the vineyards. It’s chilly here in Florida this morning, only 7C.

  5. andrew, our average November high is about 11º. Low is about 5º. We seem to be on target.

    mitch, wow. Still fall here!

    judy, that's 'cause when we were young, you could count on the weather. It was always the same. And we walked to school in two feet of snow in winter. Up hill, both ways! LOL

    bettyann, that does sound chilly for Florida. Brrr!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
