In Which Dark November Arrives in Warmth

Cedar Lake around 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4.

The late, warm fall continues in Iowa. At a time when trees would nearly be bare and the world brown, grass is still green and leaves are still falling.

We’ve moved from early fall, but haven’t had a killing freeze yet, so our warm patch is just “summer,” not “Native American Summer.” It is warm like September but dark like November.

Well, it if feels a bit off, it’s also pretty. As you can see.
