Snow Before Pumpkin Carving

Thursday evening I drove a co-worker home and made a circuitous route to my house via dirt roads and snow squalls.

On Friday morning we woke to a world of white, with a few snippets of russet, ochre, and blackened green peeking out.


It all melted by noon.

This morning we are back to a normal autumn view—frosty grass, pale blue sky, amber sun sweeping across the meadow and clusters of gold, auburn and green amid many bare branches.

More snow forecast for tonight. *sigh*

    We are still in the thick of fall here, two days before Trick or Treaters don their costumes.. so I’m hoping we don’t have any of the white stuff. These photos remind me of how beautiful it can be…

    Beautiful photos! These help get over the fact that it is still October and that winter is only officially due in less than two months…

    My first October Ontario it snowed on Halloween. I had to call my people in Illinois for consolation. We’ve had the “s”-word mentioned in the weather this week but so far no white. I can almost wish for it after seeing your lovely photos.

    Almost.

    Just got power back. Over six inches of snow already here in Brattleboro. Kids will be climbing through snowbanks to collect candy…
