So, we got the predicted foot. It’s just making a cameo appearance to promote its upcoming epic story, “Winter!”
It’s nice to look at, but like cement to move:
…and this happened without losing power! That was a big relief, it makes everything so much harder.
This snow won’t last, sitting between unfrozen ground and above-freezing air. It is October, after all.
My back lasted almost as long as the shoveling job, then I grabbed my kit and headed for the hills.
Up in Florida (!) I found some oak leaves standing up and taking notice of the change in the weather:
The driveway shot, by the way, was with Ziggy, who usually does my macros; the oak leaves are Elliot’s dirty work.
But the days are so short this time of year that by the time I got to Hawley the sun was sinking low, and the few maple leaves that had survived the snow were picking up some color:
…and I had miles to go, dinner to cook and a hungry wood stove to feed before I slept, so I booked.
I hope you all survived your weekend as well.
See you sooner.
