The First Snow of the Season


I felt snow in the air for the past couple of days. I never knew I would be able to tell when there was snow in the air, but I can ! How cool is that?

Leif has started to rake up the Autumn leaves after the rain finally stopped. I could see leaf piles appearing at Gullringstorp.

One of the first clues to the coming snow, was the gray skies, then the temperature.

This is the temperature finally got above 0 degrees C by the afternoon

There is just one pile of leaves at Gullringstorp, surrounded by a light coating of snow

I know it’s not much , but it was so wonderful to look out the windows at this snow as it fell. It was windy sand very cold so it was a beady snow. I watched the snow from my desk out my office window. It fell like tiny beads that were blown around by the strong wind. then it was fun watching a those beads of snow hit the roof of the garage and bounce off to a new destination.

First beads of snow then the flakes will come.

  2. Thanks for sharing your great pictures! It’s fun to see what the weather is doing in other parts of the world. Here (SW Washington State, USA) the leaves are lots of pretty autumn colors, but there’s also lots of rain! Plus, it’s pretty warm, even for us (today it was 18.3 C!). Happy Autumn!

    • Hej from Sweden !
      I am actually a transplanted American living in Sweden. I LOVE,LOVE the Pacific Northwest! Beautiful country.I can just picture the lovely hues of yellows, orange and reds in your falling leave. . While you have warm temperatures, we feel like we are in the middle of winter, already. We have had temperatures dropping into the minuses and the lawns are filled with frost in the early morning that lasts the entire day. Our pond has been iced over several days now. time to insulate our koi pond for the winter, a bit early this year, Al the fish will survive with a pump pumping air in and they will be protected from the outside temperatures with styrofoam and tarps covering them till April. We have done this many years and we have had wonderful results with new little babies when we uncover in in April or May.
      Happy Autumn to you also and oh yes check out today’s post: Happy Halloween!
