I wish I had a camera, or a neighbor like Jan who'd come and take a photo for me. I planted tomatoes back in May, I believe it was. Somebody forgot to fell them it's fall. They continue to produce red tomatoes. The weather has been so warm, the apple trees have come out of their dormancy and are sprouting green leaves. I'm actually hoping for a cold snap to put them back where they belong or they'll have no flowers for the bees in spring. Anyway, the weather is unseasonably warm and I'm loving it.

How is the weather out your way?

We've had several killing frosts so the tomatoes have all been added to the mulch pile. Sorry to see them go.

40's to low 50's during the day and 25-30 or so at night. I'm down I-5 from you almost 6 hrs, just inside CA. The coast is around 60 and nice. High pressure off the west coast has this pleasant system in place for awhile. I'm not complaining.

You're having an Indian summer. That happens occasionally. All we get is more intense cold and damp up here in the Pacific Northwest. The tomatoes aren't surprising. If you bought an indeterminate variety, they will keep on producing tomatoes so long as it's warm. Put them in a greenhouse and they'll go all winter. Determinate varieties grow and produce all they're going to produce in one shot! Then they're done and won't produce anymore no matter what you do.

I always plant indeterminates. That way I can pull the last of the crop off the vines before that first frost gets them and let them ripen on the kitchen window sill in the sun.

We're having our first cold snap of the winter.  Actually had a dusting of snow, but mostly rain and icy pellets.  Hasn't even frozen yet, but sure feels like it, it  is that raw, biting cold that comes with near freezing weather and winds of 15 to 20.  I don't intend to go out today at all except to put the dogs in the back  yard.  By the weekend, we'll be back in the 60s and dry again.

Heavy snow flurries on the drive home from work this evening. It was getting a bit scary trying to stay on the road. We aren't used to snow down here!

It's a nice cool 22 d c ( 72 f ) overcast day here today....we finely have got some respite from the blue cloudless sky's that we have been cursed with for the last few weeks, with temperatures in the mid 80s. It's been very dry, with no rain for a month, hopefully we will get some rainy days I am really over this relentless warm sunny weather we have been having.

Been crazy warm for lots of Alaska; highs in 30s to 40s, even got up around 50F last week; supposed go back up to 40's Monday.   Lot of warm moist air from Pacific pushing up temperatures, and bringing rain or wet snow. Thompson Pass (Valdez) got huge snow dump, more coming.

This is a training day for drivers. It's around 0C with flurries. That means that lots of drivers are learning winter driving all over again for the first time since last year.

I value our much-maligned British weather as the strong geographical and meteorological influence of nature.

Sunshine and clear blue sky is lovely but I'm not sure I would want to live under the medication-like monotony of perpetual brightness. Having one form of beauty interspersed with a different beauty and days where a pewter sky lays at hill-top level and the stinging rain off the ocean howls at us horizontally shapes who we are. Light and dark. Unpredictability and change.
