This past Saturday, we had a very odd October occurence here in Maryland...it snowed. Crazy I know...Weathermen were saying to expect 1-3"...then 2-4" and I think at one point we were in a higher accumulation area - but you see the little town I live in, likes to "escape"...and escape we did this time around! It doesn't always happen, but fortunately for us - all we got was a lot of sleet, wind, rain and then some pretty snow.
Saturday is definitely a day we won't forget - not just for the snow...but it was also the day my husband and I were taking our Daughter to her #1 College choice for an Open House (and despite the weather - the Open House went on as planned). However, instead of walking around campus on a beautiful Fall day, it wound up to be shuttle transportation in the sleet and ice lol. However, everyone was in high spirits, and I have to say it will be a day that we will not forget (and I mean that in all the good ways).
Now our trip to the College was about an hours drive each way...and I was totally bummed when I realized I forgot my camera. But it was probably just as well, because I don't think my husband would have stopped along side the Interstate while I hopped out to get a picture...lol....but take my word for it - there were long stretches of some glorious trees in tri-color peek that were just so much more prettier because of the snow!
I did catch this shot when I got home though...my metal Pumpkin Twirlers...on my front porch with our Red Maple Tree in the background...
