October Snow

Nothing like a little snow to stir things up and then shut things down. I took a few pictures with my camera phone half kiddy because it was beautiful. There were big, wet flakes, sloppy at first and then huge flakes tumbled down from the biggest fluffiest goose ever it seemed. Fluffy but heavy enough to knock over trees and power lines.

The sugar maple tree above was aglow in the snow like a jack-o-lantern just as happy as we were.

I was very happy until I realized our power was out when I went back in the house. It rather dampened my gleeful spirit, but kids only think of fun things like sledding. Over the summer you forget how quiet a calm snowfall is. You are in the middle of a caccoon and you focus only on the things nearest you.

Our power came back on in a few hours and once again we were thankful for the important things, a home, a warm bed and our westie dog's cold nose pushing against our hands, and each other safe and sound.

Thank goodness your power is back on. Although it is very pretty, no power is no fun. Good luck and keep us posted. I lived in CT for 3.5 yrs and it was not very fun in the winters. It's bad enough here in KY!

I love how quiet things are when the snow falls. So serene. There is nothing else like it is there?
I am so happy to here that you didn't have to do without power for long.
Stay warm and safe.
