The Climate Has Changed
On Nov, 2, it normally would be way more cold and we would have snow by now. The last 5 or 6 years no snow until much later on. Climate has definitely changed here. When I was a child in the 1970's and a teen in the 1980's, there would be snow up to my knees at least and Dec and Jan would be in the -40 or -50 range. Now if we hit -30 we call it a cold snap and most of the winter I don't need a heavy jacket at all. As for snow, if we get more than 4 or 5 inches it's a point of interest.
