First snowfall of the season!

When you get 4-6 inches of snow and the leaves are still on most of the trees then you get broken branches and downed hydro poles and downed trees on parked cars! Our electricity was fine on our street but just a little further they haven't had electricity all day! The neighbour's garage took the brunt of this tree. All I got were a few stray branches in the backyard which I hauled to the end of my driveway when I got home from work. My property is just left of the garage.

Nope, I just spent a half hour rescuing my small trees and bushes, like this poor Japanese maple. I went around shaking out the snow from all the branches. I was soaking wet when I was done, I had to throw my pants in the dryer afterwards!

We're supposed to get more snow overnight and then it will all melt by the afternoon! Yay! I'm not ready!!!

It's beautiful, but I'm not ready yet, either!

aaaagh. I don't ever want to have to live with snow again. A visit every few years, but that's it. Glad you have power!

We were lucky, no damage, hydro was not interrupted.

I have been spending time reading some of your older post. You do such a great job with this blog. I am sure you have inspired many along the way,for sure!
I absolutely LOVE the way you label your work, ever thought of teaching a workshop at guild???? I think it would be received. Anyway I just wanted you to know that I do enjoy your blog.

Boy, does that bring back memories. I'm with Tonya - I don't ever want to live with snow again! Glad you got off lightly this time around :- )

I could happily live without that white stuff! Beautiful when it first falls, but after a few weeks of it - brrrrr.

Let's just hope this winter is not going to be as severe as they are forecasting.
