Thank goodness for the warm ground or we would be socked in this morning. I would guess it has snowed close to six inches with most of the snow melting on contact with the warm ground. This is not what you expect the middle of October, in fact this week is usually the peak of the color on the trees. I am not sure what will be left on the trees when the snow melts off, probably something less than great color.
It is still snowing lightly with snow/rain scheduled for the weekend. I am betting many people will be disappointed with their
Fall color vacations this weekend. Looks like it will be back in the low 50's next week so the snow won't last long. We still have all the firewood to move up to the porches before deep snow. It is nice if the wood is dry when we put it under the porch.
The last picture shows the snow peeling off the porch roof in back. It reminds me of how high the snow piles up in front of the porch over the winter. We usually end up climbing a 2 to 3 foot mountain of ice by the end of the winter.
The dogs didn't seem to pay much attention to the snow. But like
little kids seemed frisky as they romped through the white blanket. I hope this isn't a sign of the winter to come. Mountain girl, Paula, logging off.
