The end of fall

You have to love those late October days. The leaves are colorful. The sun is warm. Kids in their Halloween costumes. Maybe a few more rounds of golf. Raking leaves and then watching some football.

Oops. That was when we did fall back in North Carolina. As the saying goes: that was then, this is now.

The leaves are long gone. The snow has started to fall. It was 16 degrees out this morning.

And what is that noise we hear? The rustling of leaves in the trees? Nope that can't be it. The leaves are all on the ground. Ahhhh. It's the sound of the snow guns at Deer Valley and Park City. When the temps hit the teens, that's prime snow making weather and they have to get going. Too bad we didn't get the huge snow dump that Denver just picked up. Bastards!

It is pretty, so I guess I shouldn't complain. It's kind of interesting to see that the snow guns can make their own little weather at the mountains.
