The warmth of summer has bid us farewell. We are in the middle of two extremes-hot and cold, summer and winter. Yet autumn itself is an extreme in some respects. The vibrancy of nature now is retreating into its chambers, waiting to emerge months later in the spring.
As I posted yesterday at http://learningknowledgetomakepizza.blogspot.com/2011/10/last-flowers-of-fall-and-snow-supposed.html it was supposed to start snowing today. It started snowing in our area about 9:00 am this morning. The snow sure was coming down fast and furiously. I mixed one dry mix pizza for an experiment this morning, and also mixed up another attempt for a Mellow Mushroom pizza. I also started to make some Pot Pie since it is colder and I guess I was hungry for Pa. Dutch homemade Pot Pie since I haven’t made any since last spring.
The power has gone off and back on 3 times already. Thankfully, it did come back on in a short while. These are some of the pictures how my flowers are covered in snow today, a few pictures of the Pot Pie making process, and how the snow looks in our area so far today. I will include other pictures if it snows a lot. It is unusual for it to snow before Halloween in our area.
I am back a few hours later and it has snowed more. My chicken Pot Pie is also finished.
