Living in The Land of the Mixed Up Seasons

When I was younger living in New England meant four seasons with a beginning and an end. Each season had its own special magic ~ colorful leaves in the fall, snow in the winter, tulips in the spring, and heatwaves in the summer.

During the last 15 or so years things have changed. It seems as if the seasons have shifted, and at times become completely mixed up. The weather this fall has proven just that.

October 29, 2011 we had a little snowstorm. The problem was all those beautiful, colored leaves were still on the trees. Why was this a problem? It made all the branches so heavy that many broke right off the trees taking power lines with them. Most everyone lost power, some for weeks. And for the first time in my life trick-or-treat was postponed.

I believe everyone now has their power back, and we are enjoying a sunny day in the 60's. Shorts today, winter jackets tomorrow? You never know in New England...
