SURPRISE! SURPRISE! I'VE GOT SNOW

     You can't say I wasn't warned. Snow has been in the forecast for a few days.  Last night it snowed and this morning we woke up to 3 -4 cm on the ground. Other places got more snow. It was minus 4 C (24 -25 F).

     It's not unusual for us to get a Sept. snowstorm. It can clear up nicely and we get pleasant fall weather.

     Our gardens and plants? They have been finished for a while . They are still green but are not functioning .  This will fix the green for this year.





          Now I worry about the people facing hurricane Florence. I wish them safety.   I will keep my snow anytime and not complain about it.

    1. Well, there's no sense of having a melt down over snow. It won't do any good.

  6. It looks pretty but sounds cold. I'm sure you will be glad when it's gone and autumn resumes.

    1. There will be more good weather . My birding group will end the last sat of Nov. when we will have coffee and cake. There's certainly lots of birding done in the winter.

    1. It's a fast change from summer to fall. I will still get many more Km of bike riding in.

  10. Wow! This seems really early for snow. I hope it vanishes and you get several more weeks of nice autumnal weather before the really wintry stuff sets in.

  11. Hello, oh no! I am not ready for snow. We had a cloudy rainy summer, I am hoping winter is put off for awhile. Hurricane Florence is south of us, we may get some rain from it next week. BTW, the snow is pretty to look at in your photos. Just not here. Happy Friday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  13. Oh my goodness Red, I didn’t realize you could get snow this early. Please be careful when you go outside. Speaking from experience I have hit those icy patches and gone flying.

  14. You really are pretty far north for that to happen in September! Snow is always so quietly beautiful.

    1. Well, north compared to you. There is much more north of me.

  15. SNOW!! It is hard to even imagine snow falling, especially as hot and humid as the weather has been here. I does look pretty. Thankfully, the hurricane turned a little south, taking away some of the bad wind and rain for us, north of Raleigh. I sure hate it for those who were not expecting it though.

  17. Regarding your comment at my post the other day, yes, the observatory was involved in timekeeping, but according to what I've found, atomic clocks are deemed more accurate and that role seems to have passed to the National Research Council.

  19. I just love that first snowfall, even tho it may be measured in bits of an inch. We usually have our first the second week of September also. However, in Denver, we are still setting heat records. Including the one yesterday of 97 degrees F (36 degrees C)!

  21. It does look pretty, although I hope it doesn't come too soon this year! The weather finally started cooling off and I'm hoping for a really pleasant - snow-free - autumn season!

  22. Oh, how I would like to see snow about now. Hot, muggy weather and some rain from the hurricane, but I live on the side of a mountain in western NC and will not likely face flooding. Love your photos of snow. It cools me off a little.

  23. I read the previous post, first, and indeed it is heartbreaking about the amount of water that has been continuously falling in NC and SC. Then, I checked older posts and when I read the post title about snow, at first thought you might be joking, Red/ It was pretty, but here in NH we hope it holds off for a few months longer so we can enjoy the autumn colors first.
