Now that fall is officially the season, I’m catching little hints of it. As you can see from photo above, there was actually frost on the ground in recent weeks – not often, but once or twice.
And the trees are starting to get yellow – at least some of them are.
I keep hearing the phrase “tinder dry” on the news, referring to the landscape around here, especially when dry lightning storms are predicted. Lots of local fear of more fires – the state government just extended “Wild Fire Season” because of how unusually warm and dry things are around here. I feel like the whole fire season has somewhat dominated this blog, and believe me, I am ready for it to end!
I got some hope that we may get our wish when speaking to my wild-fire-fighting nephew today, where he indicated he’s back in town and believes he’s here to stay. But honestly, a good dump of snow would confirm that for all of us. There have been years where we’ve had snow by now, so it is not totally unrealistic. Just to get some good snow feelings going, here’s some inspiration from last fall:
Yes, we are praying for snow to come soon – especially J, who loves snow more than any other weather condition God provides.
