Wednesday I woke up, looked outside and saw that the scenes outside had changed.
Snow had fallen on the "benches" as they call the mountains around here.
This is a picture of Mt. Olympus, the mountain I look at every day from my kitchen window.
Autumn has slipped lower and down among us; winter has dances upon the peaks that touch the sky above us.
Neff's Canyon. It has a parking lot and a trail that leads up the canyon alongside a stream bed. Bernie and I have hiked it once...on a hot day. I told him I'd wait until the weather cooled before trying the trail again.
This picture was taken while I was still at the trail head, in the parking lot!
If only I could have gotten there sooner...snow on the red leaves would have been magnificent.other side of the valley; I am in the Wasatch "front" (mountains) as I photograph.
(Jeepers...I seem to be changing my header daily now.)
The view above was taken looking up the street in front of my house.
All those pictures before were taken yesterday, Wednesday Sept. 30th.
This morning B. got up and looked out the window and said "There's snow on the lawn."
Yesterday's snow hadn't touched our property. This morning....snow at our place, on our deck.
And on B.'s car.
Last weekend he had declared that we HAD to clear out our garage and donate the stuff that we had left over from our move.
He said his goal was to be able to park the cars in the garage by October 1st.
Apparently he was prophetic about the need for this to happen by that particular date.
Last night (Sept. 30th) I parked in the garage for the first time since our furniture arrived last April.
Boy was I glad MY car didn't need to be scrapped this morning!
(He didn't go to work...a touch of flu...chills...feverish. H1N1 has hit his workplace already.)
18 hrs later, it looked like this!
Will winter here hold heavy snowfall?
El Nino, El Nina...I get them confused.
I'm rooting for the snow!
