Snowy end to October

We got out and walked around downtown this weekend. We checked out the food and craft show but walked out empty-handed. Stopped by the bakery and got a fresh baguette of bread. As we were walking in front of the museum, we noticed this new bronze sculpture.

 It's a beautiful representation of some of our unique animals.

Tuesday morning we woke up to a few inches of snow on the ground. Our temps have gotten colder and this will be the snow that stays around til spring. It will be the bottom layer under several feet of winter snow. There is actually more predicted for this weekend. Our playground at school looked so calm and peaceful this morning.
 By the end of the day it certainly didn't look like this anymore.
 Soon our students will be skiing on this field.
 Most of them will try sledding and sliding down the back hills.
 We have had a good layer of snow on the ground every Halloween since we moved here and this year is no exception. What a way to welcome November!
