A Difference of 24 hours and 6,000 Miles

On November 6, Tapa got its first snowfall of the season. Eyewitnesses report children sledding and building snowmen. Roads were very slippery.

In Springfield, some 6,000 miles away, on November 7, less than 24 hours later, I cut the grass for hopefully the last time this season. It was incredibly sunny and, subsequently, more than 20 degrees Celsius.
