Yesterday, from my window, I watched as the wind blew leaves from the trees – This morning I watch a gentle snow fall on them. The first snowfall of the coming winter in Muskoka.
There were three people I thought of when I saw this:
- Lana – This is why you are in Louisiana enjoying the wildlife!
- Linda – I hear you started with your Winter palette – This must be your fault!! (Just kidding… )
- Mom – Are you still coming up before May 2009???
Fortunately, the roads are too warm and the snow melts there immediately. I am sure this first reminder of the coming winter will disappear without a trace and trouble us no more for the rest of the month. After 18 feet of snow last year, winter-weary Muskokans are not ready yet!
