TRICK OR TREAT
Well, if you're an avid skiier, then I suppose snow in October is a real treat. But if you're not, then this beautiful, bountiful white stuff covering the ground is more like a trick from Mother Nature.
Snow in October? It's been over a hundred years since snow has settled on the ground this early in the season in New England. The leaves haven't even had a chance to fall from the trees. So although it's quite beautiful to see the colorful leaves peeking amidst the snow, unfortunately the weight of those branches is wreaking havoc with power lines. Thank God it's not really cold out yet and there's no real threat of water lines freezing in the short term. This storm has covered a large swath of the East Coast. I pray you are all safe and warm!
In the true spirit of Halloween, I'm being hosted on http://pentalkcommunity.blogspot.com/2011/10/happy-halloween-by-donna-b-snow.html.
Happy Halloween to all!
