NO!!

ALREADY? good god!

I was in the mountains of Colorado....and every night in AUGUST they had flurries or snow 'watches'. and yet the flowers and trees never wilted or lost leaves...and it got close to 33 or 34 at night there, every night, even though the days were like 70. perfect weather if you ask me! no bugs!
