That's what we got from Mama Gaia yesterday; a big surprise - a snowstorm in October! And it was the heavy wet stuff, with lots of trees down and power outages because the trees took power lines with them when they went. It was so wet that I used an umbrella when walking to work. I went out this morning to get some shots.

Fall foliage and snow make an interesting contrast.

The unfortunate result of heavy wet snow on trees who still have all their leaves.

Autumn leaves on snow.

And last but not least, late Fall flowers wearing a snowcap.

  1. Yeah, we sure did get hit! The snow itself probably won't stay around if it warms up a bit, but the effects will hang on while they try to repair things.

  2. Looks like it was quite a storm--so early! Wonderful shots as always.

  3. Wow ~ you really did get snow! It sure is pretty...and I love snow...but not quite this early! ha. That blue sky really makes the shots, too!

  4. Just saw the news and wow. Winter's coming 7 weeks early apparently.
