Falling, Failing? Not Feeling It

Our Fall weather is beautiful.  It's just now getting cold but no frost or snow yet.  It would be pretty early to get snow before Halloween and even if it does snow it's won't stick.  We'll be lucky if we have any snow for Christmas.  Last Christmas we had no snow and from all reports and forecasts we'll be getting less snow this winter.  And I do so love a snowy winter so I'm kind of sad about that.
