We have already had one snowfall and several frosts. Today is actually warmer than it has been for a few days.

Yes. Definitely. I got out my massive sheepskin coat a few days ago, it knocked over the coatstand twice, and I hung it with great trepidation on the Ikea rack which is kind of fixed to the wall in the hallway. If you hear screaming, it's the coat pulling the rack off the wall.

A week ago we had highs around 29C. Now the low is dipping down to 2C. I believe winter is here.

Heavy frost here this morning, but I think the temperature is rising as the rain comes in. I prefer the frost......

We had frost a few days ago, but since then I haven't buttoned my coat once.  The gloves I bought last week haven't even been worn yet.
