We went from fall to winter in two hours this morning.

After a second round of leaf raking and mowing, I admired the fall colors of the garden. But not for long.

Two hours later, it looked like this.

You can’t really tell how hard it’s snowing from this wide-angle view.
Individual flakes form a cloud over the vegetation.
This isn’t even close to a white-out, but it’s enough precipitation to discourage the backyard birds and squirrels from visiting their favorite feeder.
Snowflake tracks look like rain, visible as white streaks.

Goodbye to Fall — it seems a little early for winter’s first appearance, but this is 2020 afterall, when the unexpected has become the norm.
