Finally


My cottonwoods are finally giving up their leaves. Not much color to them this year, due I think to that sudden blizzard and cold snap that caught them flat-footed and still fully green. We're supposed to have a cold rain later in the week and that will finish them off I imagine.

Once the trees are bare I know that winter had finally arrived, whatever the calendar may say.

Yeah, we got a winter storm/hazardous conditions warning. Expecting somewhere around 20" they SAY. We'll see what actually turns up. It's over west now and headed this way. I got my firewood up on the deck and under cover. Let 'er rip.

As long as you have all you need of everything, snow is great. I like it a lot.
