All of this sunshine is such a surprise. November in New England can be a dreary mix of gray, gloom, rain and sleet. Needless to say, the 11th month is one I occasionally dread.
Temperatures have recently dipped into the 20s at night, only to warm up considerably during the day. Each morning we wake up to a thick layer of frost, which covers Vermont’s hillsides with an icy glaze before the sun quickly melts it away.
