The phrase 'October surprise' has been used in the US to mean some news item that isso influential that voters will alter the way they intend to vote (in early November). I don't talk much about politics here - there are plenty of places one can find that sort of talk - but I like the expression.
We had a big thunderstorm move through. Thunder, lightning and even some hail. This is quite unusual for October, but it's kind of welcome because it means the air is warm enough to create a large local storm. We take the good with the bad! Both my boys were on the front steps enjoying that warm air.
