Tuesday morning we woke up, looked out the window, and what did we see? Our landscape was transformed overnight into a winter wonderland.
Each tree carried a canopy of fluff.
The temperatures had dropped below zero freezing the precipitation. Say, have I ever mentioned that we talk about the weather a lot in the Midwest? That is due, I believe, to the fact our seasons mark dramatic changes. A month ago by the calendar autumn began. Now, what? Snow in October? Oh, no problem. People cheerfully pulled on hats and gloves and headed out the door to work or school. The snow on the pavement and sidewalks had already melted.
The pixies spent the entire night painting trees!
My neighbor and I tiptoed into a frosty land on our morning walk to the park.
What a treat for our feathered friends, birdseed and a drink at the same time!
These twin cherry trees beyond the fence almost looked to be in bloom again.
The geese enjoy their snack, grass with a side of snow. By the afternoon most ice melted in the sun and warming air.
Have I mentioned yet it’s almost summer in South America? I could tango in a snappy sundress in Buenos Aires or protest while wearing a wide brimmed hat in Santiago de Chile. Or I could stay in Madison to wait for the next snowfall. Look, it’s already here!
What is the weather like in October where you live?
