of October in Burlington, Vermont
Today was the first truly chilly, almost wintry day. It's snowing in parts of the state. It's a cold afternoon, in the 30s, damp and overcast. Yucky.
We haven't really had a hard freeze yet. This cold wave has just started, and the hard temperatures in the 20s won't come until tonight or over the weekend. So there's some unusual fall and even almost summer beauty to lighten up the drab almost November Vermont surroundings, as you can see in the photos I took that are in this post. The frost will nip tonight and tomorrow, so even these colors will fade to brown.
