It’s A-Comin’! November 26, 2008

I told my Siamese Cousin Bob that I’d share my snow with him when it got here.

And while it’s presently a bit thin, and I’m not yet breaking out the snow-shoes, the visage of Winter is pressing against my window.

Ice-Fog on the hills:


Thin snow on the road:


Ponds freezing in the pre-dawn air:


It’s not fully Winter, and could indeed backslide into some sort of Autumnal malaise, but still, it smells of ice and thin sun and sleep.

So be it.  I’m ready for winter.

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.
