We enjoyed our first major snowfall of the season on Wednesday, mostly overnight from Tuesday until mid-morning Wednesday. Twenty plus centimetres (close to 10 inches) was enough to bring out the plows and keep the school buses in the garage. Unfortunately, I didn't get out with the camera until the next day, Thursday, the American Thanksgiving. By then, most of the snow had fallen away from the branches, but there was still some left.
Newcomers to this blog might get confused when I say that this is a photo of the Mississippi River that flows through our town. I took this ↑↑ from a little one lane bridge. This Mississippi River is not related to the Mighty Mississippi that flows down the centre of the USA.
You will notice the title on the photo that I used on my Flickr page, and I think it's pretty apt: "Why Canadians Celebrate Thanksgiving in October." Early October is usually nice here: not too cold and lots of autumn colour. By the end of November, it's usually getting a might nippy, and we sometimes have snow.
I wondered around the area a little, and took this by the former MacArthur Woolen Mill.
A little more nosing about took me to two somewhat junky doorways — junky, but also kind of nice, I think.
Finally, a few shots looking up an icy set of fire stairs.
By that time, I was ready to give my frosty digits a break, so I got back into the car headed home.
