What's happening outside on November 4th?

In a word, nothing.  But perhaps that's a little unkind and abrupt.  Still no snow in my part of town.  It's 31 degrees outside.  To put that in perspective, my refrigerator temperature is currently set at 39 degrees.  All the bergenias in the yard have an unhappy, droopy look.

Contrast that with how perky they looked last month.

The Cornus alba 'Prairie Fire' is clinging to its last three leaves.  The golden hair grass, Deschampsia flexuosa 'Aurea', is still looking dapper amongst the wreckage.  Also the brownish sedge, Carex flagellifera, is still effective in the background of the picture below. 

Did I find anything else trying to shrug off the inevitable?  I bought cross-country skis.  Does that count?
