First snow

October 11, 2009

I just wanted to mark that today was the first snow of Fall/Winter 2009. It was no more than a quarter-inch, enough to color the deck white and provide a dusting on the remaining leaves and grasses. I admit my severe skepticism when I was told earlier this week that it was going to snow this weekend. It may be that when I hear “it’s going to snow” I don’t anticipate the literal truth alone–yeah, sure, it snowed today, but it didn’t really Snow.

But the seal has been broken. I can think of other tasteless allegories here but I think that will suffice. The next snows are coming, and I can’t think of a reason to object.
