120. Spotlight on Crepuscular Meadows: Leaves still green on October 10?
"How can we expect a severe Winter, when hardly any leaves have turned as of October 10?" Victoria Schoenberg was heard saying at lunch at Clematis Station.
"There's a lot that can happen in the next five months," Minny Dandrich countered.
"It'll be almost eighty today," Mrs. Mumble said.
"And it could be forty three weeks from now," Eric Fleemy said.
"For someone who sells heating oil, you're just looking after business," said Bismarck Fedora.
"No, I'm just saying that New England weather is fickle ad changeable," Eric shot back.
"Mark Twain said that he counted 120 kinds of weather n one 24-hour period," Stella D'Oro said.
"And he was known to tell lies, though they were often so funny that you forgave him," said a new resident at the next table.
"Ah, to be that clever," Victoria said ruefully. "Some people have all the luck."
"Well, all of us are lucky that it's a nice day, and we can go outside without heavy coats and gloves," said Minny.
