The Clock Was Set In Motion
At the end of October, the Cottages at Coffeepot received the first freeze. There were 3 days in October and the first day of November that had low temps in the early morning all below freezing. This set the clock in motion to get the process of color change in the leaves moving. My assumption was that our Japanese Maple Tree would be bare well before Thanksgiving. As of December, the tree is starting to shed but is still rather full! This includes 5.5 inches of snow that fell on the branches and started to bend them due to the weight of the snow.

Lots of Rain and Snow
Fortunately, the Cottages at Coffeepot in Soldiers Pass West Sedona we also received 5.58 inches of rain as well as snow bringing our year total to 19.37 inches, not counting the snow. So even without monsoon, we have the 4th highest total rainfall in the last 11 years and we still have the whole month of December to add more to the total.
With all that rain, snow and low temps, the Mean Temp was still above November of last year. The HI and LOW temps were also 1º higher than last year.
HI Temp = 77.7º
LOW Temp = 25º
Mean Temp - 48.9º
There have been only 3 days below freezing for a High Temp since 2011, none in 2019 so far.
The Japanese Maple is still going strong. Usually, by the first couple of days in December, all the leaves are gone. Notice the snow still sitting on the roof! If you didn't see that, you would never know we had any snow.
