So early!

From the kitchen window
I don't recall ever having snow fall at our elevation so early in the fall.  This is what we woke up to yesterday morning; it is, for the most part, gone here at our place this morning (except for some patches on the ground).  It was a good drill...we learned a thermocouple is out on the water heater that heats our floors, and the firewood has not been brought up to the porch yet.  All fixable, but reminders, nonetheless.

We had a bit of snow on thursday. It was the earliest I can remember having snow flurries. It was gone in a few hours. Strange, strange weather - snow Thursday and today it is in the mid 70's and I am in a t-shirt.

What a reminder! We have been having such balmy summer weather here it's almost hard to imagine this is coming! I just hope it holds off for a little while longer..... we're still working on that wood pile!

Pretty...but I'm really not ready yet!! We need to hook up the generator and get the wood pile stocked!

It is pretty Martie, but I'm glad it's going to melt for you quickly. We're still experiencing summer-like temps here in Minnesota, but that's likely to change back to normal soon. The Old Farmer's Almanaca is still predicting lower than average temps and higher than average snows for us. We'll find out soon enough.....

Ruthie: We're supposed to have another drier than normal winter here...although it was nasty cold last year. I missed the worst of it...it was -38F at one point while I was in CA...very unusual. I've not seen much more than -20 or so in my years here.

Winter white and clear blue skies. Lovely photos! Now I'm anxious for our first snow.
