First Snowflakes Of The Season

This week started off with rain, rain, rain. I think we received around two inches in one day and there were flash flood warnings for several of the surrounding counties.

By Wednesday the temperatures had dropped and we saw our first snowflakes of the season. 

For a couple of hours the snow was falling at a really fast rate. It was a very wet snow and melted as soon as it hit the roadway.

It did leave a very light dusting on the grassy areas for a little while. 

But, soon the clouds rolled away and the sun popped out.
The funny thing was how it left rain drops on all the trees and bushes.

It was so pretty and was like they were stuck or frozen there.

I was so glad to see the sun. And, of course with the sun comes the hunt for shadows,

like the little tree on my way to the Post Office.


  1. What a beautiful collection of photos! We've only gotten about two inches of rain in recent months and we desperately need more. It's in the forecast for the next 48 hours, so we shall see.

  2. We've got snow in October but not last month. Beautiful shots.

    My Shadow Shot post, have a blessed Sunday!

  3. Wow they looks pretty i like snow..We have snow once in a while but rare..Happy SOOC Sunday. Mine is up.

  4. We are late getting snow here in NY...which I am happy about...lovely photos..You mentioned the brown recluse and when my sister went to Texas to attend school, she was bitten by one and didn't know what it was and got quite ill and needed treatment. I am glad that we don't have anything like that here..Michelle

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhh, beautiful!!! I'd love some more rain like that HERE! ---Those red berries with water from the storm....priceless.

    Here is my link to my shadow shots If a tree falls in the swamp, do you HEAR it?

    Hope you're having a great weekend.

  6. To find beauty on even a wet dreary day. That is photography!

  7. I especially love the photo of the droplets on the red berries. Sometimes rain can be so beautiful!
