Stupid. Weather. 24 deg. below average high.

Today's average high is 63 but we could have flurries with the continued rain tomorrow. State College (where Penn State is located) already has slushy snow on the ground. This is not an Ides of October practical joke. (Beware the Ides of....) Yuck.

Here are some yard pics from today in the rain.

This is the prettiest poison ivy gets! It's been in the hedge for decades.

The cinnamon fern is getting ready for winter.

Here's that recurring October-blooming honeysuckle with maple leaves and witch hazel.

Knitting? I'm knitting on the second Cascade 220 fingerless mitt.

And that is why I moved from PA to AL. It was 70 here today although cloudy and overcast most of the day.

Looks like fall, but feels like winter. Love the fall colors but the cold will put an end to them in a hurry.

Mother Nature is not being nice to you is seems this year.

At least you have an excuse to stay inside and knit--but I know you would trade the excuse for sunshine and warm weather.
