The leaves are turning colors! Gorgeous bursts of yellow and the occasional red intermingled with fewer and fewer splashes of green, speckle the mountainous landscape of our home.
|The moose and mild temps we've been experiencing. Notice the green leaves with just a touch of yellow/orange in the background. Yellows and oranges are everywhere as we drive around.|
Just this morning, on Techno-genius's birthday, the temps were cool in the morning, quickly heating up to where little Selah didn't even need a coat while playing outside -- chasing the neighbor's dog who had come for a visit.
But, wait.... the weather channel has issued a WINTER WEATHER WARNING!!!
UMMMM..... Didn't they notice it's F-A-L-L?
We haven't carved pumpkins, roasted pumpkin seeds, made costumes, put out corn stalks, burned pumpkin spice candles. It. Can't. Snow!! Not yet.
Ah yes, then I remember -- we live in Wyoming now. Snow can come At. Any. Time. Any month. Any day.
Like today! It starts in the mid 60's in the morning; the nice warm sun shining to make it comfortable even without a coat; only to DROP to the 20's as the day progresses, allowing S-N-O-W to fall. Temps to drop. Coats to be required.
By the next morning.... we have 6-8 inches of the white stuff covering the ground.
|This was taken Oct. 4, 2013. Just a couple days after the above 'moose' photo.|
The joke here is, "Wyoming has two seasons. Winter and July!" We're getting a little taste of that now. ;-)
Can't say I mind all that much.
It's still so beautiful.
|Those trees were such a beautiful hue of yellow against the gorgeous blue skies just a day before.|
I just hope I can get out and get some photos of this beautiful fall foilage before all the leaves drift to the ground -- frozen.
Enjoy your fall, whether it feels like winter where you are (like it did here in Wyoming for a couple days) or summer (like I've heard it's been in Ohio where we used to live). It's still all part of God's wonderful creation.
