Winter is coming.

December arrived and the temperatures started not going above 10 degrees. At one point, different weather sites reported temperatures of -1 to 0 degrees, although in my ad hoc home measurements, it only became as low as 1-3 degrees. I thought winter was here already.

Alas, by the end of the week, temperatures even reached 18 degrees by my measurements. Starting last night though, there were strong winds. I thought it was nature's way of blowing away the leaves from the trees, and from the ground to certain spots so that they can easily be taken away to become food for next year's new trees and plants and flowers. Alas, today, most red and yellow and brown leaves are now almost gone from the trees. Winter is near.
