I have just received my first indication that I am in for a very long winter. See the following.
This is what it looks like outside my window. I know it's a bit fuzzy, but the flakes are getting bigger.
Usually, the first snow is a great sense of joy for me, but not this year. I absolutely love fall so having Mother Nature work her wiles on the seasons like this is rather disappointing. Sigh...hopefully the winter won't be too terrible. Stay warm everyone!
