My husband, whose journalistic sensibilities lead him to follow every news source available on the web, says that it has been forecasted as a mild winter.
Everything that we have seen so far seems to support this theory.
We have had, and still have, an indian summer that is extending into November.
Not unheard-of in Denver (which has a milder climate than most imagine)...but still noteworthy.
This has allowed us, as a family, to enjoy the new kid's section of the botanic gardens for far longer than we ordinarily would.
Ahhhh...fall blending into winter. Now this is a pattern I can get behind.
