The Season of Snow is upon us!

Earlier this week we had day with highs temperatures of 67 and 68 degrees Farenheit. Overnight, we switched to the Season of Snow. Spousie & I both had Veteran's day off, and we collected the last of the leaves and filled only 3 large compostable bags full (as compared to the 12 or so we used to fill each weekend in October). I knew it was going to be the last time to dispose of leaves this season.

I was actually looking forward to the snow. There was nothing on the ground (or falling from the sky) when I went to bed last night, and I woke up delighted to find several inches of snow on the ground. A veritable 'Winter Wonderland'. There was also snow and ice on the trees, too, breaking branches, and toppling some trees entirely (fortunately we only lost branches, not whole trees).

We pulled out the snow thrower and the shovel and I had fun. Yes, it was cold, and no, I don't like it when my toes are cold, but I am happy to have begun the Season of Snow! Welcome!
