late fall snowfall


We had a bit of a snowfall Tuesday night, and while there wasn’t much in the way of accumulation, the wet snow stuck to every leaf and twig such that almost everything was outlined in white.

Last year we never had a significant snowfall. Two years ago (or was it three?), we had a very snowy winter for Virginia. That winter we had more snow than my brother in Buffalo, who had a “light” winter…
