Weather and nature mostly.

Well. The long summer is over. We had our first freeze last night after mid 80 degree days that seemed to go on all fall long. OK. Some days were well into the 90's.
I was wondering when we'd take the plunge, since most nights were still into the 40's and 50's. It may seem unusual to some folks, but November can have our coldest nights some years, when the dewpoints are very low along with the sun. Then comes more winter like conditions with dewpoints into the 30's and 40's keeping the night temps up. That said; into Jan--Feb many years, a strong cold low or a backdoor coldfront pushing far north air into AZ might better the November low temps.
I covered most tomato plants, but pieces outside the cover were burnt to a cold crisp. Now its sunny and warm outside by late morning.
