This is what our neck of the woods looks like these days. We have had cooler temperatures and snow on the ground for over a week! A combination of fall and winter, bright and colorful leaves in the contrast of white snow is something of beauty.
We are anticipating warmer temperatures later in the week, so I expect this first snow to melt. I don't think anyone around here will complain and would enjoy some more fall weather before the onset of winter. Time will tell!
