I’m sure there are plenty of places where snow is not usual in October, but the Connecticut shoreline is not one of them. I completely discounted weather reports yesterday and was duly shocked this morning when the temperature quickly dropped and white flakes began falling. So from my last post on leaf peeping, here we go – straight to a winter wonderland blanketing spooky Halloween decorations and trees that haven’t even dropped their leaves. We didn’t have much accumulation here by the shore, but the wet thick flakes were falling furiously this afternoon. Mother Nature’s on my list for causing the cancellation of tomorrow’s Souterrain, but I still braved the damp, windy conditions for about 15 minutes to document the Nor’easter’s visit to Morningside.
