DiscoverMag: October - dramatically warm and dry in much of U.S.

It's seriously scary. End of October, and you could sit on my side patio in a bikini and sweat to death. The leaves on the trees are just dropping, not even turning colors, for some species. The hummingbirds took off in a bunch on time, and our winter juncos have shown up ... but the cold weather ain't here, and ain't gonna be here for a while.
