After a premature Spring with temps pushing 90, this:

Snow in the high country, several inches.  Northern Vermont got two feet, so I guess we should count ourselves as lucky.

Mount Greylock got a good coating:

…and Monroe got its share:

Strange, after such a warm early April.  Flowers and flowering trees might take a beating from this, regardless of its transience.

We’ll see, I guess.

Winter, that is.

I usually like it when the Big Snow holds off until the leaves have dropped; Pagan Sphinx will remember the occasion which taught us that lesson.

But I’ve been feeling the bite of the changing seasons, and when the sun came up over my job site, I was greeted by this:

A blanket of ice fog rolling over the summit of Mount Greylock, nearly obscuring the Veterans’ Memorial Tower.

The snow line came down to about 1800 feet (I’m estimating,) leaving the valley dry after the morning dew blew off.

I’m cold, as I always am at the beginning of Winter, but excited; I know I’ll thicken up to it, and Winter in these parts is my favorite time of year.

It’s just so damned beautiful.
