Today dawned clear and crisp, and I was not ready for it. It is not unusual to be greeted by a morning temperature of 23 degrees in the Adirondack Mountains in mid-October, but the past month has been unseasonably warm. I had been lulled into warm-weather clothing complacency and still wearing flip-flops.
Snow on the High Peaks and the lake fog, lifting as the cold air drew the warmth out of the water, were my first clues it would be a wool sock kind of morning, in addition to being a stunner.
Warm weather is due back to the Adirondack Mountains this week, but today’s cold and teaser dusting of snow reminds us, fortunately, ski season is almost here.
