So, I thought it was still October

But then this happened, and made me doubt myself.. It was quiet and it was pretty.  But then this happened and made me a little nervous… A branch on this tree (you know, the three that routinely tosses big sticks at our vehicles?) cracked under the weight of the leaves and snow and came to […]
