Okay, I still remember Halloween my sophomore year of high school when the Pittsburgh area was hit by freezing rain and snow. A group of us trekked around the neighborhoods collecting candy, being careful to hold onto hand rails, and laughing often!
Yet, when I awoke this morning to slushy sounds, I thought maybe I was dreaming. I knew that more snow was predicted for last night and today, but I did not expect to see what I did when I opened the door and peeked out. Slushy, heavy wet snow was on the ground, on our steps, and sticking! It was falling steadily and later would pick up.
I half expected to hear cries of "no school!," but I wasn't in school. I'll return for good one day, hopefully.
Instead I ate an apple and then put on shoes to photograph the very close area (back yard, neighbors' homes, etc.). When I got back, Scott was awake and told me, "it's snowing!" to which I responded, "I just took photos!"
Here they are! The fourth is one of the sage bushes in the back yard, and the last is of our neighbors' pumpkins.
