First Snow

The first snow of the season dusted the mountain tops around us last night.

Fall is definitely in the air – and winter feels soon to follow.

Isn’t this a picturesque farm?  I always enjoy looking at it as we cross the bridge into town.  It has flooded several times over the years as it is barely a stone’s throw from the Skagit River, but it looks beautiful – especially with the dusting of snow on the mountains.

The weather people around here say we are going to have a fairly mild winter this year and I hope they are right.  It does seem a little early for snow though – a portent of things to come?

Because I thought it was time for something new, I’ve changed the look of the blog.  Don’t the new colors remind you of fall?
