Southold-Peconic: Historical Society’s Harvest Dinner to be held Nov. 10

‘Snowtober’ was the word some meteorologists used to describe last weekend’s record-breaking weather phenomenon. The possibility of an early snowfall also meant surprise snowblower sales for some local retailers. We were spared this time, but it was a cruel reminder of what we have to look forward to in the coming months.
