Salem weather: A delightful September leads to beauty of October

(Continued)

Although October is usually not noted for severe storms, there was one significant exception. This was the unprecedented, early nor’easter called The Perfect Storm (The Halloween Howler) of 1991 that resulted in extremely heavy seas and extensive coastal damage. The surf at nearby Devereux Beach in Marblehead was spectacular.

Hmm, how about snow? Although, not a usual occurrence, we can and have had snow during this early fall month. As recently as 2011, we had just over 4 inches of snow right here in Salem.

So, enjoy October — the warmth of the summer sun may be waning and the transition from summer to deep fall is in full swing. Nevertheless, the crisp, bright days instill a feeling of excitement that enhances the joy of living.
