Friday and Saturday I was all set to write a post about how autumn has really begun. The brilliant, dazzling trees - during my five years in France and Rochester, I saw pictures of Vermont fall foliage in magazines and stuff, and I remember assuming that they were cherry-picking (so to speak) the best examples in the state, that relatively little actually looked like that. So it was a pleasant surprise to notice colors like that on the drive home from work one day. :) And Saturday my dad and I got out the cider press, went over to Rick's, picked some apples and made four gallons of cider. And we didn't have time to finish all the apples we got, either - more cider-making is planned for next weekend. 2 gallons for Rick, and probably the rest for us. Good times.

Unfortunately, it looks like I won't get the chance to write that entry. BECAUSE IT'S SNOWING OUT.

Gotcha beat...snowed in Boulder on the 11th. I didn't personally get snowed on - I work in a dungeon - but people in my karate class came in snow boots.

There's nothing like waking up on a nice October morning and seeing the forecast "31 dF, 100% chance of snow".

Walking back from classes - I'm convinced that what's falling on my head is snow. Miles says, "No, it's flurries!"... flurries my arse. He's from Maryland, I'm from Vermont - I know snow.

When I walked back home this morning, I found snow on top of a few cars. I wish it would snow more, so it doesn't rain.

Snowed on the 11th? Wow, that's pretty bad. It didn't stick, did it? I'd be amazed. Ours didn't last a day.

I actually like snow and winter (though that too might be affect by not driving in it too much for five years...), it's just this cold wet slush we got and are likely to get again that I don't like.

Nice to hear from you again, by the way. It's been a while. Of course, that's probably my fault since I've been on AIM so little, but...
