And sometimes, it feels like early summer. Never know what it's going to be one day to the next around here. Big part of why I love it here.
Still, it can be bitter cold at 8K in November. Better have some back-up insulation ready. October-December are very weird weather days out here. Be ready for the worst and hope for the best; bout all you can do. Georgetown, which is just a hair above 8,000' is getting snowed on right now and the overnight lows aren't forecast to be above 23° through the weekend. Next Monday, after the snow stops on Sunday, the highs are forecast in the mid 60s and overnight lows in the high 30s and low 40s. It's a whacky place to be sure.
