October Snow

It started snowing on Friday and hasn't stopped (today is Sunday). They are predicting this storm to continue through Monday. So far we've lost two trees (pines) off the back patio. I took the photo above from the back door.

At this point, about 24" have accumulated at our place. Because the storm began as rain, the heavy wet snow has stuck to the trees - weighing them down beyond their capacity. Deciduous trees have not even begun turning color yet, and branches are coming down in a big way. All those leaves covered with snow.

This tree next to the shop was really hanging low when we got up and at mid morning, it snapped - just missing the shop.

So far, no power outages for us yet. I know there have been a lot of problems in the area, though.
