Today was the first day for snowfall in our area! Although it was unexpected... it was not completely surprising when it happened. Let me explain.. apparently, if the acorns fall off the trees early, like in August, as they did this year, a harsh winter is sure to follow. I learned about this curious tale from our neighbor and friend Donna (thanks Don!!) and I think she is right! Hunker down!!!

Its a strange sight to look outside and see red and yellow leaves falling along with giant snow flakes.

The dogs are not fans, but I am--I love it!

Here are a couple pics (camera phone--sorry if a bit hazy).
