Winter is here!

On October 21st we had our first official snow of the season.
The amounts varied throughout town but we ended up with about 6 inches of snow here.

Greg left these apples on the trees for the birds and they look kind of pretty with a covering of snow.

The raspberry bushes are weighted down with the cold wet snow.
Vegetable beds with an icy blanket.

We have had a bit of freezing rain and a couple of dustings of snow since then.

 Right now it is just cold and very icy.

 Other than getting ready for the holidays, we haven't been doing too much outside the home. At home we have been eating a lot, sitting in front of a fire a lot, and playing with the kitties a lot! Yeah, it's a tough life.
