First Snow!!

It’s October 29, 2011, and we have snow. Pictures to come soon. Right now as I write this I look out my window and see it coming down hard. It feels like it should be December! I can’t even remember the last time we had snow this early!

The other day we got a dusting, but I won’t count that as first snow because it was mostly gone by the morning. This storm is said to accumulate quite a bit. In Litchfield County there’s rumor of 10+ inches. For me, 6+ and while I love snow, I’m not ready to shovel! I don’t even know where my winter jacket is!

However, winter is my favorite season. Actually, the time between fall and winter is. I love the cool, crisp air and the smell of approaching snow, but the leaves are still changing colors on the trees. The scent of fires going, and apple or pumpkin pies baking… mmm…

What’s your favorite time of year?
