    Oh my! This is rather early, even in the mountains of Vermont, right?
    Do you have any frost in the ground – or even had a killing frost yet? That finally happened here last night. Quite late for most, but normal for us here, up on the Ridges (Moraine): when we finally get a frost it’s a killer.
    The Northern Lights were dancing up a storm here on Tuesday night… Do you think that might have caused this freak of Nature?

    @ Deb – Indeed, very early. This is both first snow and first frost here at 2,000′. The frost is late. As for the snow? Oh I shudder to think of what the next storm will do to the trees. I will likely be up every hour to gently shake Japanese Maple and Dogwood branches. Ugh. I just hope it stops. I have so many autumn chores yet to finish. xo M
