Fall, Meet Winter - aka "Hello, Blizzard!"

Talk about dramatic weather changes!

What you can't see in the pictures is the temperature difference - not to mention the multiple extra layers I had on Saturday!

Friday afternoon we had 40's - yesterday we saw single digits and wind gusts to 47 mph. And snow - not lots, fortunately, but less than an inch of snow was still enough to leave a 2 1/2' drift across our front walk and have the plows running non-stop to keep the emergency routes clear.

Thankfully in the country the roads were much better. The snow stopped by late afternoon, and we headed out to make sure the horses were weathering things okay.

With the wind out of the north, they have the shelterbelt to serve as a windbreak, and were tucked in contentedly at their bale.
