Tell me about it!
It started early (at least here) too. November 11th was a very cold day for that time of year. The high was 41 and the low was 20. (Compare to our normal mid January hi/lo of 40/23.) Many trees still had green leaves and these were freeze-dried onto the trees and stayed attached to the trees all winter! And for species that don't normally retain their brown, dead leaves, like Japanese Maples.
Winter began early, and so it seems, it's ending late. I don't recall the last time I've had to keep my potted stuff inside into the 2nd week of April. It's ridiculous.
