It seems like summer lasted for a long time, we had a brief fall, and when we got up Wednesday morning, I was greeted by a very winter scene.
Of course the snow was nearly gone by the time I arrived home from work, but even today I found snow on the north side of the trees.
There are still remnants of snow on the north facing hill also. By the way, this is the fence that must be replaced next year. You can see it if you really try.
We had quite a few inches of snow. Between the rain and snow, it turned out to be over an inch of precipitation. That’s good. We need the moisture, but I’m not sure I’m really ready for winter.
Not only have we had our first snow, but our beautiful colorful leaves have also disappeared. Any of the leaves I found on the trees today were just brown and dead.
Most of the trees are bare against the skyline.
The crops have been harvested from the fields, and they too are brown and dead beneath tonight’s mourning moon.
I think Iowa fields are still beautiful even when they’re empty.
Even the goats are looking like it’s winter. The kids are really getting fuzzy and round.
I am not ready for winter. I still have a lot of work to do outside before winter gets here for real.
