"Fall"ness?

This is how it looked around here this morning.

C'mon... I know you love it! Look closer!

Below is my garden. Nothing left out there but carrots. They always taste better after a freeze, which is why I haven't dug them yet.

And the view from my sewing room window. Poor flowers.

The white stuff can still make for pretty pics, though!

Take a look at the wind action along with the white stuff. All day yesterday, last night, and today we've had winds of 30+ mph, sometimes gusting over 50 mph. Our barometric pressure has been at a record low, which I guess is the cause of the strong winds.

Things should start looking up. All of today's white stuff has already melted this afternoon, and though we could get a little more overnight, with those winds continuing, the sun is supposed to come out tomorrow, and it looks like gradual improvement from there.

Today was probably just a taste of things to come... a warning, perhaps, to get ready!

I can't believe you have had snow, even a dusting. Yikes. Although we DID turn on the heater for the first time this morning. Ya know, it was all the way down to 66 in the house after all...

66°... Yeah, that's chilly.

Ach! Thats not fall thats winter! Dislike, dislike, dislike. Is there no happy medium? We're at a happy medium here, I confess I can overlook the foggy sky for such mild weather.

I don't know if you noticed but you may have captured a picture of an alien in your spruce tree.
The clanging sound was undoubtedly made by some malfunction in their space ship.
I'm not sure what it was doing in your tree but I have a guess.
He probably had to go.

Hmmm... I know I left a comment on here before. I wonder what happened to it. Maybe it disappeared because I said you were nuts, Dale. ;)

For anyone happening to follow this comment thread, I just thought I'd let you know that today - Friday - it got up to 62°! MN... land of infinite variety! ;)
