The long, harsh and all around brutal winter we had last year was for a brief while a distant memory. The Fall has been colder than usual. Just in case Mother Nature didn't want us to forget her, it snowed on Hallowe'en. A few days before that, this aerial view arrived from Lilly showing Melbourne, Florida. She told me it was 26C as she was writing my card and she checked that it was only 6C here - yikes! I really hope it isn't going to be a repeat of last year.
