#30 – Winter Leaves

Photo taken: November 15, 2018

How in the hell did a photo taken just a little over two and a half weeks ago end up in this countdown that started in June?  Well, I had second thoughts about the entry I originally had in this spot… and this photo I took during our early season mid-November snow was more than enough to tempt me to make the switch.  While I was patiently waiting for the lone squirrel who was lingering in the tree to come out where I could get pictures of him, I happened to accidentally shoot a picture much like this one… which first made me notice how weird it was for me to see snow covered autumn leaves!  This was the first time I remember there being an accumulating snow where I live before Thanksgiving, and usually the last remnants of the dead leaves are long off the trees before the first coating of white comes along.  So, we have yellow and brown oak leaves with a nice white coating.  It’s a different type of Fall foliage beauty…

    It has been one strange Winter and it isnt even Winter, yet.

    Nice! Our snow season is generally early in the year. It’s currently an unseasonably warm 12 degrees here – not even any need for heating and if it weren’t raining, for a coat either.

  3. We had snow at the same time. Must have been one HUGE storm. We got hit in Connecticut and when we got home, it was still snowing there. It’s gone now. it got warmer and rained a lot more and it has been raining so much, I feel like I live in a world of mud. But not to worry. it will be back and may our non-climate-change stop changing soon.

    • It’s done plenty of raining since that snowstorm, including Saturday night when it was coming down in buckets (At least we missed the tornadic storms). I don’t mind it as much now that the grass is done growing… I’d very much like a dry Spring, but that’s wishing for the impossible.

  4. One year we had a super early snow here when there were a LOT of leaves on the trees and it weighed the branches down so much they snapped off…..we had LOTS of branch damage and it cost big bucks to have everything trimmed back. Thankfully that’s VERY RARE around here.


    • Now I am wondering….. if it snowed on July 4th, would that be considered an early season snow or a late season snow? And would people still shoot off fireworks in the blizzard?

  5. The oak trees in my yard lose their leaves after everything else (except for the trees across the street who are still clinging to their branches waiting for the perfect snow storm to sully any photographic attempt to capture some nice winter scene). #bastardtrees
