Arriving 30+ days earlier than last year, we woke up this morning to our first snow fall of the season.
To say the least, I was not prepared mentally to see the white stuff.
Yard toys, summer gear & hoses are still out... needless to say, we will be "winterizing" immediately.
As much as I like snow, when you have 6 months of it up here in Alaska, I'm not anxious about it arriving earlier than usual.
The good news is by early afternoon it had all melted.
However, we have a lasting reminder, as we look at the snow-covered mountains, that autumn is indeed on its way out and mother nature is sending winter our way.
