"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

Pre-Halloween Horror

Early snowfall--fun or fearsome? Hard to say.

What's unusual about this first snow is the timing. We still have vividly-tinted golden and orange trees, here and there. The combination of autumn foliage and white snow is strange...yet beautiful.

It's a sunny, blue-sky day. I had occasion to take a long country drive through hilly terrain with mountain vistas. Breathtaking views.

We're having a break today, but there's snow on the way, perhaps even our first Nor'Easter tomorrow night. Predicted snowfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches. That's quite a lot for October! Even for November!

Ruth and Jewel opened their Snow Wrestling season this morning. Even though the conditions weren't exactly stellar.
