White on Red





I woke up this morning to a world transformed. Three inches of snow covered everything. Every twig on every branch on every tree wore a coat of white. The snow weighed down the trees, grasses and shrubs. It was heavy and wet. The red leaves of the maple were a startling contrast to a world made white. I don’t know if I have ever seen snow on autumn leaves.

This is the earliest it has snowed on the mountain in the 7 years I have lived here. If this is a harbinger of things to come, we are in for it!

Thanks for stopping by, CGP. The snow is still on the ground (we have had cold nights in the 20s) but it is melting. It was an odd storm. You could see the snow line on the ridge tops.

What a shot! Please post more when you can. There's more snow in this one pic than we see all year here in TX.

LOL. Maybe you need to move to the "north" of Texas. We had snow again this morning. Only about an inch and half this time. I left the house with the snow falling gently in large wet flakes. The trees were covered but the roads were just wet. It was picture postcard beautiful. I'll post more pics soon.
