  • Monterey Matters: Snowfall on Halloween isn’t the right treat

    I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather we had last week. I’m not sure we are going to be enjoying it for much longer. It is really beginning to look a lot like winter already this week.
    On Sunday, while out doing some shopping I even overheard several people discussing the weather for this week. I heard a couple of folks saying that they were calling for snow on Halloween. Snow ... on Halloween?
    If it were to do this, I would really be surprised. I can’t recall seeing snow in October. I am praying this storm passes us by.
