Quite The Storm Yesterday

Seems so very strange to wake up on a Sunday morning in October, glance out your window and view a winter wonderland staring back at you. Yesterday's Nor'easter packed quite the wallop, our small hamlet seeing close on to a foot of the white stuff on us, snow shovels and big trucks with large plows making an early appearance here in Sullivan County. Lets hope this early winter storm is not a sign of what old man winter has in store for us as we look ahead...if it is, going to be a very long, cold, desolate winter in these parts.

The Farmers Almanac is forecasting “clime and punishment,” a season of unusually cold and stormy weather. For some parts of the country, that means a frigid climate; while for others, it will mean lots of rain and snow. Judging the winter yet to come on yesterday's snow storm, would say "Clime and Punishment is a good descriptor of things to come. Meanwhile, the vivid blue sky outside, the fall color still remaining coupled with the snow makes this a great day to grab your camera and go out for a walk.
