As each Thanksgiving passes, it's interesting to chart the changes over the years. Compare this series with May Day.
Even though it was a month after closing, I couldn't spend Thanksgiving here as I'd not yet moved out of my previous residence, and I had "family" holiday obligations. But I did sneak in a quick visit a few days before.
A few days before Thanksgiving 2016, a large dead tree fell. I was thankful it was nowhere near the house, cabin or camper. (As a precaution, I had all dead or dying trees near the house removed in 2014.)
Thanksgiving 2017 was unusual in that many trees still had green leaves. Perhaps a sign of climate change, or just a strange fluke? Regardless, it was a crisp, sunny day in the mid-40s; two days later it hit 60.
I won't be living in my house by Thanksgiving 2018, as I'd hoped, but perhaps soon thereafter. We'll see.
