We woke up this morning to this. It's only October! This is a far cry from the 80 degree temperatures Tuscon enjoys in October.
Luckily, we were warned well in advance of that a "cold spell" was headed our way so Bill and I (mostly Bill) covered the tomato plants in an effort to get a few more of the 1000 green ones to ripen on the vine.
Only two days earlier, it was a beautiful 75 degree day. Now we have snow, snow! It melted quickly, which is a good thing because we can't find our snow scrapers. A must-have item if we are going to survive a winter here. The warm weather is scheduled to return for a while. I am glad because I am not ready for winter yet.
The children's Halloween costumes will definitely include thermal underwear this year.

Looks gorgeous. We're finally dropping out of the 90's. BTW, did you send us a big book on planes? The boys love it, but the only clue to the sender was your current city.
