Yes, it snowed!

Only a few centimetres, but yesterday's forecast proved right, and we woke up to a white world.  It's almost all gone 12 hours later, but it was wet sticky snow, and clung to all the leaves and branches.  I think this is the earliest I've ever seen snow that stayed at least for a few hours, and we may get more tonight.  There were higher accumulations just to the east of us.

 Out the Front Window

The Side Yard

And the Meadow out Back

I liked the look of the blue Monkshood covered in snow.

A big clump of sumach we see on our morning walks.

Snow on the evergreens.

And Roxie loved it!  She was delerious with excitement, romping through the yard and rolling in the snow repeatedly.  She just seems to love winter!

The mixture of rollling clouds and blue skies continues here, and the sun was able to melt almost all this snow.  I got out to visit a couple of Bruce Trail properties and check boundaries, while my wife made the annual batch of apple sauce today.

  1. Ah snow! It will be cold enough to snow here tonight, but if it does I doubt it will be enough to cover the ground. Nice to see your photos of the snow.

  12. Lucky you. We haven't had weather cold enough even in the high country to get any. I sure hope we get a better snow pack this year. We even lost glaciers with this drought year. - Margy

  13. Roxie has the proper attire for winter! This is the first week our area will generally be in the 80's for highs instead of 90's. Beautiful photos of the first snow of the season.

  15. That pic of Roxie is just perfect! It snowed here last night- I saw it on the rooftops this morning, and it's been snowing a bit since, but it's not really staying on the ground yet.

  19. Oh WOW ! you did get hit good with snow . Down here we just got a touch of frost and a few wet snow flakes but it is cold as are the winds they have that nip to them now ! Looks pretty there though and lovely photos ! We have had snow staying about by Halloween quite a few years ago then it would melt and we wouldn't have a true winter till January for many years . Thanks for sharing , Have a good evening !

  20. Your Roxie looks like a snow dog! Pretty snow...and yes I think the fall is dampish and feels much colder than in the dry winter:)
