Nothing like a bit of snow to really put the blue in the autumn blues
What a shock. Madison's light dusting of snow yesterday was like a cold slap in the face. "I'm not ready!" I wanted to shut. "There must be a mistake! Make it stop!" Which it did soon enough, obligingly. Did you notice how blue sthe snow was? (Well, actually it wasn't -- that was me, leaving the color balance on the wrong setting when I stepped outside. But the result seemed to describe the way it felt.)
At least it was more colorful earlier in the day. Every year I seem to forget that there will be snow, and every year it takes me by surprise. Where did autumn go? Can't it continue a bit longer? Why not? Why why why?
