Larry says Mother Nature never repeats herself. Remembering October of 2020, let's hope not.

Looking back, September of 2021 got over 80° twice, didn't get as cold as Larry might have preferred but did actually achieve above-normal precipitation.

Looking back a little further though, October of 2020 set an 80° record October 9 and followed it up with 12" of snow a little later in the month, and it garnered "fifth coldest October on record" honors, too.

This video was taken October 20 of last year:
