It got a little snowy...

First it was a little snowy...

Then there was a little more...

Then there was the wind (this is a mild bit) ...

This is how it looked until the warmer temperatures started today, and the rains started. This is at sunset yesterday.

Our first storm of the season, in what looks to be a tough winter.
The blizzard has gone on to the Midwest now.

Veterans' Day Salute!

... and a [huge] THANK YOU!
to all who have served and those who continue to serve
in all of the branches of the
Armed Forces of the United States.
We have had three sons serve in three branches:
Army, Navy, Marines,
and currently have a son in the Army
who sent us these ID tags for wearing for Veterans' Day.
The tags read:
We hope that all know that we are grateful for their service,
and for the sacrifice their families make, as well.
This arrangement is for you:
flags for the country you represent,
a yellow rose for remembrance,
ID tags for the servicemembers.
The vase is a branch from the forest here,
a piece of home.
