The First Snowfall
I was awakened in the middle of the night by the cats and dog shifting their positions, under the covers and on top of my pillow, and I heard frozen bits hitting the window. I was pretty sure there was snow on the ground -- the lightness was a giveaway -- but I put my glasses on just to be sure.
We received a couple of inches. It needed to be brushed off the cars and swept off the front deck. And at 11 am, as I write this, it's not melted away. Yet it's only the middle of October, the middle of autumn, so we have leaves falling on snow under a clear blue sky.
This is the first snowfall; I don't always have to mention it but I don't think I've seen this before -- the leaves blanketing the blanket of snow.
