Fall one day, winter the next.....

 Everyone was enjoying the casual slide into fall weather as the leaves began to gradually change. Green grass still abundant.
 Megs on the look-out for any unwelcome rodents in the barnyard.
 Looking down the E/W alleyway, fall colors abound creekside.
A gold & ruby browse paddock.

 Snow clouds on the horizon.
 October 29th and the snow storm is just beginning.
 Going out Britton Road on a quick trip to town before the brunt of the storm hits.
 The trees on Jumper Road bowing under the weight of a heavy, wet snow. Glad to have all-wheel-drive.

 Six inches and still coming down....
 Nine inches and still snowing....
Enjoying the lovely aubergine iris bloom I cut before the snow arrived.
