Backyard Almanac: "Non-predictable November"
A year ago, we broke the record with the warmest November temperature ever. The year before that, it was under 10° and the ice was thick enough to stand on.
Larry Weber loves a good alliterative phrase, but he had to coin "non-predictable November" for himself.
Whether it's weather or redpolls, November follows no precedent and no rules.
Nature-lovers, however, can count on a few things: the return of flying squirrels, World-Series moths, dancing crane flies and the return of Standard Time.
But unlike everyone else who's annoyed at the changing of the clocks, Larry says the stargazing is spectacular.
