Autumn?

   Octsnowber greetings my friends!  I snapped this photo from the top floor of our house because I thought it rather interesting I had a scalloped Nestabilities frame on our pool cover!  We are supposed to be in the throes of peak leaf color here in New England, but apparently Mother Nature has other plans for us!  This was the little dusting we got on Thursday night, and  tonight we've gone from zero to blizzard in less than half an hour.  
   As I type this, it's snowing at the rate of about an inch per hour.  We're in for it...yup...winter's here.  It was fun driving down into town seeing everyone filling their gas cans for the snowblowers; the local tv news interviewed our 'naybahs' at the Home Depot telling how they've pushed the leaf rake displays back and brought out the snow shovel cartons, and the snow throwers--which have apparently already sold out online.  
   I can tell you from experience that it is not a good idea to wait to buy one of these pieces of equipment.  We bought one of the last three snow blowers on the North American continent last January...the man at the Sear's store [a Scottsman] regaled us with his tale of foresight.  Seems he procured an extra palette from a Canadian Sears--they apparently were all well prepared.  You see they only manufacture a certain number of snow blowers--of any brand--each season.  Once they're gone, there aren't any more until the next year.  So, if you're thinking about it at all--just buy it now;  you'll probably thank me...tomorrow at least! 
   Here's a last tribute to Autumn created for the Moxie Fab World Trigger Tuesday inspiration:

    A scalloped snow frame! How cool is that. I'm so glad we're not having any snow here. Actually, we had a barbecue on friday, on my birthday. It was at my parents' house, in some kind of garden house with a fireplace in it. We were so lucky that it was like 15C that day and almost no wind. Thanks for the birthday wishes (do you say it like that?). I love your card and fun to see a picture from your view!
