No, we do not always get snow this early. It varies. I remember trick or treating one year in the snow and the next year in short sleeves. Some years we have 75 degree weather around Halloween and some years we get snow storms. In fact, it is a favorite family story how the doctor had to wade through snow drifts to get to my great-grandparents house the day my grandfather was born (his birthday was 2 weeks ago.)
Oh, and if you are starting to think about Christmas you may want to check out my Etsy store–just posted some customizable Christmas cards in my new series: The Christmas Pageant. Non-customizable print versions of the cards will soon be available as well.
