The snows of October


The most famous of snowfalls in October around here came on Halloween, 1991, in the first few months we lived in Saint Minneapolis. Though 31 years have passed since then, we have never seen as big a snowfall in all these years hence. The odd thing is that I had no frame of reference for it, and at the time I just assumed that that was pretty much what a Saint Minneapolis snowfall was like.

It is and it isn't. Mostly it isn't.

The truth is that it rarely snows here in October. As I write on October 29, well into the evening, it is 57 degrees out. But a couple of weeks ago it did snow here. And that was pretty odd. The snow stuck around into the afternoon as well.

As you may imagine, I took pictures of it when I could.

And as you may also imagine, I did a lot of stuff to those pictures, cause that's how I do things these days.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
