We've enjoyed a warm fall, with leaves just turning (not on the elm/oak yet; they're all still fully green). But those pesky Canadians sent us an early cold front, harbinger of what is come. I've got 10 small trees (6-20 ft) and just got in from knocking off more snow and ice. We have 6" on the ground, 6-10" more coming. Did a wedding at 5 pm Friday on Casper Mtn at the cross-country ski chalet - beautiful setting and thought it was raining/flakes in two, was snowing nicely up there. Pines all white; couple took some pix outside but I deferred! The mountain is supposed to get 2' of snow by noon tomorrow. Now none of this moisture will last; it will be 60+ by midweek and, apart from downed branches and ruined young trees (grrrrrrr), no evidence. But tonight the plows and salt trucks are running. Our young church, drawing from all over the county, will be hard hit in the a.m. and lucky to have half of what was there last week. Already had an older couple I visited last night (after I sloooooowly came down the mountain from the wedding) say they would not be coming . . and I can't blame them. Anyone else having "weather" this Columbus Day weekend?
