October snow

Even in Vermont, ground-covering snowfall in October is a rare event; we were unpleasantly surprised last Friday when we got 2-3 inches overnight and had to spend some time clearing off the car in the morning.  But that was all gone by that afternoon.

But now this:  at least a foot of wet snow overnight.

All this rainy, rainy summer I’ve been wondering if this trend will continue into the winter.   Let’s hope not.

The good news:  the maples pretty much lost all their leaves a week or so ago, so (though I’ve not been up to check yet) I don’t expect much damage from this very wet, very heavy snowfall.
