if november.....

If November comes dancing in the door frosting the leaves like winter cupcakes,


sending howling winds through the trees so that the leaves are left clinging, with a tenuous hold, to their short lives


before being strewn across the concrete like yesterday's news


coating the cars with an unwanted dusting of snow


that leaves us shivering and hurrying to our closets to pull out winter coats and boots much too soon. as if Mother Nature is laughing at us, and we are left wondering if we are alone in not understanding the joke.


yes, if November roars in like an angry lion bringing winter, too early, and unwelcome, then it must mean that by February winter will have spent her fury and February will frolic in like a lamb. 

That's my theory and I'm sticking too it.

  1. I hope that February winter will have spent her roar. I had my AC on yesterday afternoon and now the wind is blowing and temperatures are 30 degrees lower. But I am grateful there is no snow.

    1. At least the little bit of snow was gone quickly, but it is very cold.

    1. Thanks, Susan. If it isn't right you may find me in a tent on a Florida beach in February :)

    1. If it doesn't work out I am thinking that we can charter a bus and just head south. :)

  5. You can be my weather forecaster any day, Laura. Let’s just get this over with. A balmy February boggles the mind.

  6. I like your theory. I want to believe your theory. But I'm afraid it may be disproven . . .

  7. The snow in the US was on the French Tv news! Yesterday was still warm here and people were bathing in the sea... Not that I want you to be jealous!

  8. We sat through snow during a football game on Friday night. Strange for KY in October!

    1. It is definitely strange, Michelle, and not what I expect living in Kentucky :)

  10. Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    I have never seen snow in person yet. It is a bit rare in Australia - we do have a couple of places where it snows in winter but I have never managed to make it there yet. ;) These are beautiful photos!

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I add participating blogs to my feed reader.

    So I'm just dropping by to let you know I've added your blog to my feedreader, I'm reading you loud and clear, I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts, and you'll likely see me drop by again during November.

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!
