First snow of the season

That season would be Fall, not Winter.  October is early, but not unheard of, for such a strong winter like storm. And this one had it all...freezing temperatures...100mph winds and about 3 to 4 inches of wet snow. Some of the local ski resorts were reporting anywhere from 8 to 12 inches.

Since the forecast calls for temps back in the 70s next week we can't really consider this the 'start' of the season but merely a preview. Based on this it should be a great ski season.

However, the members of our family that aren't skiers find this sudden change to be somewhat distressing. This guy was sitting in the sun under his favorite tree just yesterday.

Notice the leaves on this tree haven't even turned colors we are hoping there is more 'Fall' to come.

The new branches are bending under the weight of the snow...

So windy the snow stuck to the screen...
tsk says 'please Mr Sun... come back... I miss you!!'


  1. YIKES! PLEASE dear friends - DO NOT send that snow storm to WI!!!

  2. The sun will be back, sweet kitty. Promise. Pinky swear.
