November is a very interesting month. It’s found between fall and winter (except Laramie where it’s winter from September to May). Most of the leaves have already fallen and the last autumn colors are fading. The sugar rush from Halloween is over and sweater and scarves are everywhere. Football is in full swing and the brisk weather is perfect for it! With 30 days in this month, it’s packed full of lots of things.
