Mums and Colorful Trees and Leaves Equal Fall

It’s my favorite of the four Seasons of the year — Fall!

Hearty Mums brighten Fall’s colors, too!

It Is Snowing…

The second “real” snowstorm of the Winter season began its work Sunday evening and continued through Monday morning, with village and state snowplows and local snow jockeys with their own plowing blades appearing in every neighborhood of our little city.

And it snowed, and trucks kept trucking;

and geese kept flying southwesterly;

and work crews kept crewing;

and pups kept asking, “Go where?”;

until it stopped with Winter white trees sparkling through, and a big Winter statement ended, once again;

and clean-up continued.

Really…Lake Effect Snow Already?

Oh, my! Snowflakes and plows and double-takes! Oh, my… it’s the season’s first Winter snow — but it’s still FALL!

It started last night,
hinted at morning’s plight.

This morning’s blowing,
quickly got us knowing
It wouldn’t stop soon,
not even by noon!

It brought us to attention,
early Winter’s gloomy mention.

The bridge was fine,
but sitting was undermined.

Trees bent very low
and branches were so.

Birds said emphatically “no”;
headed off to otherwise know
a place of sunset’s glow.

 

Fall Trees in the City

As we get ready for the Winter cold, I photographed our fading leaves and trees in the city, complete with wires, lights, signs, and poles! It’s kind of a fun way to see Fall… The bridge in Napoleon cuts through the city, dividing it in half. It crosses the Maumee River, a main waterway that runs Northeast to Toledo, Ohio, and Southwest to Cincinnati, a course that in the 1800s cradled the great Maumee & Erie Canal system.
