Oh my, so cold! I am a wimp and would be hiding inside.

High 30s?! I'd be so wrapped up in sweaters and coats I'd be unable to move.

We hit 41! Big thrill. LOL. Believe it or not, I was outside raking leaves and sweating today. That's how I can tell it's been really cold--when I feel warm with 40 degrees! I even found a few flowers in some protected microclimate spots--Lamiums and late-blooming Alliums. Happy GBBD!


Those temperatures sound terrible. I could have easily waited until December or January to see the teens!

Those temps are below normal. As you say, more like Dec. or Jan.

I was out almost four hours yesterday trying to prep my back garden beds and do more raking. We had a lot of leaves come down with the last sudden cold spell and have been waiting for a decent day to clean stuff up. Planned on going out again today but had not planned on snow overnight!

You must have always lived in a warm climate. It actually got up to 44 degrees and I was out working almost 4 hours. Once you get going and with sun and no wind it's not as bad as it sounds. That said I did have 4 layers on top (starting with a snuggly cami) and fuzzy leggings and flannel-lined pants. The big problem is always keeping my hands and feet warm but I did OK.


A bit cold for this time of year but if it's clear and dry, delightful weather for cleaning up after the party that is autumn.
