It was a very disorienting sight, with deep snow covering yellow leaves around open water, and the flowers still blooming.
The storm set records just about everywhere, and allowed my first-ever skiing in the month of October. I was able to complete my favorite short loop with no problem at all. (Although I did have to use my special cyan wax that works on leaves!)

The only animals I actually saw were ducks on the lake, including a group of eight, which I think are ringed neck ducks.
On our walk up to see what's new at Child's Park, we saw an interesting phenomenon on the front yard of the Meredith Center Fire Station: dark leaves soaking up the heat of sun and melting their way down to find their proper resting place on the ground.

At the part itself, the new building is now completely sided and the electricity and plumbing are coming along.
The best news of the day, however, is that we, unlike about half of the people in the state of New Hampshire, didn't lose our power. High scores to the Electric Coop!
