After getting a few wet flurries earlier in the week I awoke this morning to our first appreciable dump of snow. I was glad to have the day off since I've heard traffic conditions weren't exactly the greatest this morning.
For some strange reason my trees still have most of their leaves which makes them stand out quite a bit against the others in the neighborhood. Apparently they didn't get the memo about losing their leaves quite yet. I certainly won't complain about not having to fetch the old rake though.
