Back in September there seemed to be a bounce in everyone’s step and genuine excitement over the great weather that dominated almost the entire month. Almost daily in emails, phone calls or personal conversations someone would ask if we were going to break the record for the warmest September since 1881.
This month all of that has changed and there is no glee in the persistent clouds, rain and cool weather that has dominated our weather for the past three weeks. Although the first half of October was the coldest on record, the phone and email inboxes are not full of messages asking if this will be the coldest on record, or because of the rain, the wettest on record. If you must know, the answer to both is likely no, but we will finished the month in the top ten in both categories.
The weather pattern will change eventually, but probably not until sometime next month.
