Snow on The Mountain

As predicted, the misty rain turned into beautiful snow as the temperatures dropped this morning here on our little mountaintop cabin in Bland, Virginia.

Last night we saw a few flakes mixed into the mist, but it didn’t show up in a picture. It’s hard to take a photo of falling snow sometimes, especially when the ground is too warm for it to stick. But I have to say, it is simply beautiful and quite unusual for the first day of October.

Eight deer were out in the alfalfa a few minutes before the snow began to fall. I guess even they decided it was time to find a little cover.

Our son says it is sunny and beautiful at home in Wilkes County, North Carolina – perfect weather for the Apple Festival.

But here in Southwest Virginia, we’re having a little Winterfest! One pot of coffee down, hot cider up next!

  1. We had a Thoroughbred racehorse named “Snowonthemountain” – crazy that you had snow already but that’s what your title said to me! MJ
