Meanwhile, at the cottage…

Posted: November 1, 2010 in Uncategorized

First snow. If there are any words I abhor, those two together qualify. Yep, indeedy.

Montreal got its first snow of the season this weekend. Up north we got more first snow than in town, and I hate first snow.  The first snow means I have to wake up and smell the roses… er mud.

It means, nope, there won’t be any miraculous last minute cancellation of winter. It’s coming fast. And much faster than I can comfortably live with.

I admit it’s sort of pretty though, that first dump, even though it gets really old really quick. An inch or two… awwww pretty.   Three to six feet?  Not so much.

Saturday at midnight, the maple in front of the cottage (one of the many maples in front of the cottage, but whatever).

Sunday morning:

It’s gonna be a looong winter.

    Ooooo….first snow….that hurts! I am NOT ready for fall to go away and be replaced by winter. So please keep that frigid air up your way for just a bit longer!!

    You’ve got to admit that the first time each year you see a tree covered in ice, with sun gleaming off of it, is pretty special. The second time, as you say, not so much…

    The photos are lovely but I want to live in a place where it never, ever snows, OK?

    I am just now starting to wear jeans instead of shorts. I still have to decide on a daily basis. We are finally getting a cool front and it will be in the upper 50’s this afternoon.
    I can’t imagine snow in late October.
    That last picture looks like a museum masterpiece watercolor. Wow.

    Em – It does hurt. I hope you’re far enough south that it won’t affect you for a while.

    Suldog – Yep, pretty then not so much

    Ian – You live in a place where it rarely snows. That’s a good start. How’s about we move to palm springs?

    Gaelyn – Ah, lucky you way down there!

    Rachel – If you find work in AZ, I’ll come down and be your illegal alien maid.

    Geewits – Thanks for the complement. Too bad it doesn’t look like a watercolour of a beach!
