Just wait 5/10/45/other minutes

Ice irony

This little juxtaposition is probably unnoticed by pretty much everyone passing by this still life, which lasts all winter.

The day has played out cycling between big drifting flakes and sun/melting, with a few episodes of overcast/windy. We’re in the latter at the moment.

We hear that north of here they got six to eight inches, but maybe half that here, but difficult to assess as there were so many melting cycles. Now there are just scattered patches of snow and most of the mowed grass is snow-free. Several times, the green was obscured by the white stuff.

    10 minutes of loud sleety stuff last evening & that was it. For now. Glad we closed the moomincabin a couple weeks ago. Mid-October says Mother Nature and she makes the rules.

    Yeah, we knew it was dicey to be up here this late. Still, the leaves were gorgeous and we’ll take that. ’Course the snow is pretty, too. Basically, if there’s sunshine, I can work with it!
