Fall has arrived here in the White Mountains, bringing with it the usual beautiful hues and sleet/snow. It came in quick, too. It’s currently 34.5 degrees outside and they’re predicting a heavy frost overnight tonight. I personally don’t like the cold weather. I relish the 80-90 degree summer temperatures. I guess considering my previous statement you must think I’m crazy to be living in the heart of ski country. I suppose I am, a little anyway.

There are a few things that I enjoy about the colder weather: cuddling up in front of the fireplace with a good book and my kitty, homemade Tomato Bisque, Hot Cocoa and the warm, fuzzy feeling I get when watching the snow fall from inside my warm, cozy living room. Of course work really picks up for me in the winter so I stay busy too, between chimney fires and motor vehicle accidents.

This evening I keep turning on the outside light to see the snow flurries drift silently to the ground. It amazes me how such a silent event can change so much in so little time.
