IT HAD TO HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER !

    Yesterday we got snow...3 or 4 cm (1-2 in) of snow. and as we say when something happens like this, "It had to happen sooner or later." It's snowing again this evening and we're supposed to get more snow tomorrow.
  
    Now it's not unusual for us to get snow in October. The snow will melt and disappear. Even if we get snow at the end of October , it will likely melt. It's also not unusual to get snow in September.

    Now it's a bit of a downer when we get snow like this. We've had some very nice weather to this point. 

     So I will hunker down for a few days and when the snow has melted I'll be back out in the yard. I still have lots of yard work to do.

     So to all my Canadian buddies, have a happy Thanksgiving. To my American buddies, I won't forget you when you celebrate Thanksgiving.

  3. Hi Red, Those are some cool (in more than one way) snow pics. :-) Well, I hear you on It had to happen sooner or later. We're having changes in our weather too ... rain and lots of wind and much shorter days makes it seem kind of dark. Oh well, I guess these kind of days make us appreciate the good ones even more. Hope you and your family have a fine Thanksgiving. In honor of you guys I had turkey for dinner tonight. :-)

    1. We can get snow much earlier than this. This will melt and we could get a few weeks of very nice weather.
