First Snow

We got our first snow of the season last Friday morning - about an inch on here on the high prairie. According to the TV weather people, we were a day or so away from setting a record for the latest first snow. It was a good wet snow, but as is typical was mostly gone by the end of the day.

The snow came down hard in the morning though and drove some visitors up to the house for refuge.

And for food. How do you like that improvised umbrella?

The front seems to have dropped the temperature enough to start driving the Canada geese down to us. They have been late arriving this year and this is one of several waves that flew over the house, honking like mad (click photo to enlarge).

Love that finch picture.

Yeah, the finch is great, and I like the geese too. It'd make a nice print if it can go big enough.

Snow? You mean that white stuff that lasted about 15 minutes before melting off?

It was kinda fun. My Bouvier had never seen snow before. He barked at it for a bit, til he figured out it was fun to play with.

Mid-November, and still not really hawking weather, even up here in S.Fe. You SURE there's no global warming? :P

Steve, Get ahold of me at gyrkin at gmail dot com ... I'd like to talk with you a bit more about the RNFs and the Tazis. -- JT
