October 2007 will go into the books as the warmest October on record in our area and many other areas in this part of the country.
Most of the early part of the month was very warm. We even approached 90 a few times. It was also dry. We even had to run the air conditioner a bit to keep the house below 80 for the guinea pigs.
The other interesting thing is the fact that arctic sea ice has been below normal. It’ll be interesting to see if that has an effect on the winter or is a long term change
