Leaf-raking has been put on hold for awhile.
A storm the weatherman described as a “classic nor’easter” moved up the coast yesterday and crossed New Hampshire overnight. I woke up to a foot of snow on the ground … in October! This is unusual even by New England standards. In fact, even the weatherman seemed surprised. Some parts of the state got two feet of snow. Many are still without power, as this was a wet, heavy snow, and there is a tree down in my yard. But … the first snow of the season is always beautiful, and I ventured out to take pictures.
See that horizontal tree on the ground? That isn’t supposed to be there. This was a record-breaking snowfall … the old record for the month of October was something like 3″.
And so ends October … looks like tomorrow night’s trick-or-treaters had better bundle up.
