Snow!

Our first snow was actually on October 29, 2008, just a spitting snow, and any snow since then has been a spitting snow.  But this morning while I was getting ready for my walk, it started to snow!  And it stuck.  For a little while, that is. I love a little bit of snow on everything:

Tamarack needles, still hanging on:

And pretty red berries (any idea what this is?):

And on my return, the sky over Lake Ontario looked really ominous, like someone was going to get dumped on:

But the sky to the west was turning blue:

And the snow started melting.  But it was still colder than a well-digger’s rear end all day.

    I think the snow is too early but it does make things brighter than dull grey clouds and rain. The snow tonight has left us with treacherous roads here and more is coming tomorrow.

    Reminds me of the Robert Frost poem “Walking by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

    Ruth – I agree, it’s too early. It will make the winter seem that much longer. Hope your roads aren’t too bad for you. They were bad here the other night.

    Martha – I love Robert Frost, thanks for the reminder of the poem!
