Some rain today with snow on the grass as the temperature fell. Nothing unusual or serious; just a reminder that anything can happen from here on.

The period from mid-November through Christmas is a kind of fifth season in New Jersey. Drab, often damp, with declining daylight.  Temperatures can rise to sixty or fall well below freezing.  Substantial snowfalls in December are  uncommon but no surprise when they do occur. The season  is alleviated, made more bearable by holiday decorations. After New Year's  Day we hunker down for four weeks of dark & cold. Groundhog Day is an Event.
