Yes, yes, everyone has felt, seen, and heard about the slightly chilly weather. It is with some interest that I note as of Nov 18th, our lake has frozen over.

Usually, the lake freezes over the 1st week in Dec. Ours is a glacial pothole lake, so it's the last in the area to freeze given it depth and active springs. It doesn't matter how warm or cold the summer or fall may have been, the thermal inertia of the lake evens out the warm and cold days, until the shortening days finally pull enough heat out of the lake. Last year was unusual - Nov 23rd, so this is even more unusual.

So, yes, while the cold weather is not itself unusual, the *duration* is, and thus is reflected in the early freeze over.
