It's the back end of November; the leaves are pretty much off the trees and the scenery is getting gray and brown and dreary, especially when it gets overcast and precipitates. We had some seriously unseasonable cold weather over the weekend, and now a truly wintry storm system is moving through the area today. We started out with light snow for a couple of hours, which changed to sleet, then to freezing rain, and finally just plain rain, with the temperatures still hanging around the freezing mark. As it moves out tomorrow morning it's supposed to change back to light snow. Yup, damp, raw, cold, gray, and dreary. The end of November is living up to its reputation!
I walked through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park with my cell phone camera this morning while my laundry was washing; the hike was at the peak of the light-snow-turning-to-sleet phase. Yup, dreary!
