Early snow is a bummer, but beautiful

If you're a regular reader you've seen this before - it's the Thomas Hill Standpipe. It's really the most beautiful water tower you'll ever see and it's just down the street from our house.

If you’re a regular reader you’ve seen this before – it’s the Thomas Hill Standpipe. It’s really the most beautiful water tower you’ll ever see and it’s just down the street from our house.

We got about 10 inches of snow last Sunday, Nov. 2. That’s NOVEMBER TWO!!!

I shoveled the driveway twice then watched the plow scrape by around midnight. It blocked our garage with wall of snow as big and heavy as a roll of wet carpeting. Yuck.

But I got some great pictures out of all the weather with just a short walk around our Bangor neighborhood.

Our old front porch railings weren't up to code so they put new ones in last spring. It took our ambitious new neighbors to paint them this fall. Just in time for Mother Nature to paint them with snow last weekend.

I hope this guy has a good windshield scraper.

It's a Christmas Tree ornament made by Mother Nature. I don't know how this happened. The snow was so heavy and dropped so fast it just built up around a loose leaf?

  1. It certainly is a beautiful water tower… er, “standpipe”. I guess we have a pretty nice one here in MN as well- the Highland Park water tower.
