Oh-hu. This was the first day I have look upon that the frost (not snow) was staing in shadowed (sun dont reatch) areas all day. Leaves and the nice colors are just a memory that has been gone fore a while.
Here in the South East of England we are currently experiencing the warmest 31st Oct on record… (allegedly, according to a BBC weather forecaster), 21℃. Normal average for this time of year (mid autumn) would be around 13℃.

The highest was 24C, which I think is a couple of degrees above the July
average. As the press here would say, “Phew, what a scorcher!”
Reports of a tornado in Leicestershire this morning; not confirmed yet.

Yesterday it was so windy I was looking for my ruby slippers just-in-case! rotfl!
But really, it was knocking over everything on the patio.
At least my “fire tree” finally turned bright red over the weekend. The sunlight hitting it lights up everything in the house a reddish glow! I would post a picture but I gotta find a place to share it from first. Why can’t the forums have an album section or something to easily upload pictures for a post?
It’s beginning to cool off around here too. Saw a snow squall or two last week. Day temps are in the 50s. Supposed to go into the ‘teens’ at night this week. Guess that means I’ll be having to bring a jacket to my night job! The deer are in rut, hunting season is in progress, so the highways at night full of deer. I sure don’t like hitting them. Oh, well. I like this better than that hot weather we get in mid summer! Anything warmer than 60o F is too hot anyway.
Yes, I do. Not a trophy hunter, I usually chose a couple of nice does for the freezer. I’ll take an elk if one shows but they’re chased pretty hard around here. An antelope is also welcome. Once in a while, I’ll go for rabbit. I also spend too much time (and money) at the range, one of my favorite past times.
As far as openSuse in Montana, Linux is fairly popular here. I have, one at a time, been converting many of them to openSuse.
First snowfall this morning - maybe an inch, maybe more. The windchill was 0°-10°F through the Hellgate* though I took the forecaster’s word for it and stayed indoors along with my old cat who I bottle-raised from an infant (eyes not yet open). Second snow I’ve seen in thirty-five years or so since moving here…
Went for a walk yesterday evening with 4x4(Polardogs), it was light snow in the air and I was seeing something interesting. Some roadwork? Charcoal and firewood have we a lot where i live. Put down/cover the area with 25-kilos bags of charcoal and light it. Cover then with thin steel plates and 2 days later you can start digging (frost is gone). This is only during wintertime of course. Average frost deep at my home town is 1.7meters during winter time.
The photo (poor quality, sorry) is showing something else, A machine that is burning diesel-fuel to do the same job. Why not? With today’s more fuel effective car/truck/bus and warming houses whit oil is rare.
