A much more typical November morning today – instead of the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having the past few days, it was once again a crisp, cool morning with a slight purplish tint to the sky at sunrise and the distinctive bare trees.

Ah, November – the best month of the year IMHO, and my favorite month (and not just because it’s when my birthday is). I love this time of year – as the days cool down and you start to get that first possible expectation of snow – though the delightfully foggy mornings we’ve been having are nice, too.
