October Snow Storm in the Shenandoah Valley

If this is the trick, then I’m ready for the treat!

October 29th, 2011, I woke up to a winter wonderland — the Autumn trees were covered in snow. It snowed steady until about 1:00, when the big clumps of snow started falling from the trees. All told, we ended up with just under 6″ of snow here on our little hill and we only lost one small oak tree. The sun finally came out just in time for a spectacular sunset.

It’s pretty, but I hope this is the last (and worst) snowfall I see this year!! (click any of the pictures to enlarge them)
