A Lot Can Happen in 24 hours

Gingko leaves late October

and that's not always good. Yesterday I ought to have been checking out fall color, with the sound of leaves crunching underfoot, not slogging through slushy streets. And while the storm will not be as dramatic as the October blizzard in Buffalo a few years back, which really devestated deciduous trees unable to hold the load of snow and leaves, it's still a strange sight and a little disturbing to see so many leaf-covered trees covered in snow.

Yes sir! No good, not in my book. I've never seen snow on green leaves in 40 years, here. And all the lost flowers. What a drag.

Nice Gingko shot.

I'm with Frank and Jane on this one. I'm ok with a dusting by Thanksgiving, but negative on full-on snow before Halloween. But I get Marie's enthusiasm about the snow and rare weather events. It will certainly be one to remember and I'm glad that I got out to experience it, wet feet or not.
